MIAT Mongolian Airlines has launched flights to Singapore.

The Mongolian national carrier will operate a twice-weekly service between Ulaanbaatar and Singapore Changi Airport, via Beijing. The airline will operate the route with a 174-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft in a two-class configuration.

The new Ulaanbaatar-Singapore service opens up new business and tourism opportunities between Singapore and Mongolia.

In the 12-month period ending July 2014, Singapore welcomed more than 8,000 visitors from Mongolia. And with deepening bilateral ties between Mongolia and Singapore over the past decade, Mongolia has seen rapid industrial and economic transformation. Since 2011, the countrys GDP growth has been outperforming those of developing East Asian and Pacific markets. In 2013, Mongolia recorded a strong GDP growth of 11.7%. Bilateral trade between Singapore and Mongolia amounted to more than Sin$85 million in 2012.

Changi Airport Groups Executive Vice President for Air Hub & Development, Mr Yam Kum Weng, said, We are proud to welcome Mongolias national carrier to the family of airlines at Changi Airport. Mongolia has enjoyed strong economic growth and as the country opens up its economy and resource sectors, there will be more business and investment opportunities not only between our two countries, but also between Mongolia and Asia Pacific. The direct Ulaanbaatar-Singapore service by MIAT Mongolian Airlines is thus timely to support growing demand for business and leisure travel.

To celebrate its commencement of operations at Singapore Changi Airport, MIAT Mongolian Airlines is offering promotional fares on return economy class tickets starting from Sin$670.
