MIAT Mongolian Airlines has taken delivery of a Boeing 767-300ER.

Mongolia's flag carrier completed an historic order in 2011 at the U.S. State Department in Washington, D.C., marking the first time in more than two decades that the airline extended its route network by purchasing Boeing airplanes instead of leasing them.

"This is a momentous step forward for MIAT Mongolian Airlines as we continue to enhance our fleet," said Jargalsaikhan Gungaa, President and CEO of MIAT Mongolian Airlines. "We are pleased with the comfort, range and payload of the new 767-300ER and we look forward to introducing it into our long-haul fleet."

Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Sales for Northeast Asia, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, said, "We congratulate MIAT Mongolian Airlines on the delivery of their first direct purchase 767-300ER. With the new passenger-pleasing cabin interior and low operating costs, Boeing is confident that the 767-300ER will play an important role as MIAT Mongolian Airlines continues expanding into new markets."

The Boeing 767 family is a complete family of quiet, fuel-efficient airplanes that provide maximum market versatility in the 200- to 300-seat market. Boeing has delivered more than 1,000 767s that are flown by more than 120 operators worldwide.
