MIAT Mongolian Airlines has ordered two
Next-Generation Boeing 737-800 airplanes and one 767-300ER
(extended range) airplane.
The order, valued at $245 million at list
prices, marks the first time in more than two decades that MIAT
Mongolian Airlines will extend its route network by purchasing
Boeing airplanes instead of leasing them.
"We are making a tremendous step forward with this order, and
the Next-Generation 737-800 and 767-300ER airplanes are the ideal airplanes for us to expand our existing fleet to offer more
scheduled and charter services from Mongolia to major cities in
Asia and Europe," said Orkhon Tseyen-Oidov, president and CEO
of MIAT Mongolian Airlines. "The Next-Generation 737-800
has already proved to be a great success with us through its
advanced technology and high operating efficiency, and we look
forward to realizing the benefits of the 767-300ERs comfort, range
and increased payload capabilities for our long-haul flights."
Services will provide pilot and technician training for Mongolian
Airlines' Next-Generation 737 and 767 crews.
