Chongjin Airport (IATA: RGO, ICAO: ZKHM), known within North Korea as Orang Airport, is a small airport located approximately 40 kilometres from Chongjin, North Hamgyong in North Korea. Built by the Imperial Japanese Army, designated as K-33 (Hoemun Airfield) by the USAF during the Korean War, Chongjin Airport is now controlled by the Korean People's Army. Hoemun Airfield was renamed when the original Chongin Airfield K-34 was abandoned after the Korean War. The airport is normally used by the military, though a small number of commercial passenger flights also operate there.
The airport also serves Rason, which is about a three-hour drive away.
