Boeing Dreamliner will open direct flights between Ulaanbaatar, Berlin, Paris and the West Coast of the US for MIAT Mongolian Airlines

The Boeing Dreamliner aircraft will open direct flights between Ulaanbaatar, Berlin, Paris and the West Coast of the US when the first one arrives for the carrier soon.

The airline is looking to connect its home base in Ulaanbaatar with major European and North American cities beginning in 2021 and will lease the long-haul jet fro leading aircraft leasing firm Air Lease Corporation.

“Our vision is to become a globally recognized Mongolian national flag carrier, and we are making a significant step forward by adding the first 787-9 Dreamliner to our fleet,” said Battur Davaakhuu, President and CEO, MIAT Mongolian Airlines. “The Mongolian Dreamliner will fly our passengers direct and in unmatched comfort to their dream destinations. Today is a proud day for MIAT and for all Mongolians.”

Los Angeles-based Air Lease Corporation purchased the aeroplane and is providing a long-term leasing agreement for its delivery to MIAT. “ALC is honoured to announce this significant lease placement with MIAT Mongolian Airlines and be the first to introduce the airline to the Dreamliner,” said Steven F. Udvar-Hรกzy, Executive Chairman of Air Lease Corporation. “We are proud to support the national carrier as it expands its fleet with the most technologically advanced aircraft to connect Mongolia with the rest of the world.” 

“It will be wonderful to see the 787 Dreamliner in MIAT Mongolian Airlines’ livery flying in and out of Ulaanbaatar and connecting Mongolia with key destinations across Asia and Europe. The airline has continued to build on its proud aviation history by modernizing its fleet and operations. We are honored MIAT has selected the 787.” said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing at Boeing.
