In early April 2017 Boeing, in collaboration with Mongolian Airlines, announced its decision to lease two 737 AX airplanes from Avolon, a global aircraft leasing company. This new addition comes as the airlines hopes to improve its single-aisle fleet in the coming years.
President and CEO of Mongolian Airlines, Tamir Tumurbaatar states, “The 737 MAX will become a cornerstone in our fleet modernization strategy as we look to introduce new airplanes to our customers in the years to come. These fuel-efficient airplanes will help us realize our goals of driving down operational costs and expanding the regional network, while also providing our valued customers and passengers with an unmatched flying experience.”
Tumurbaatar continues, “We will commence a new scheduled flight to Busan, South Korea beginning this summer and increase frequency for all flights toward Asian and European destinations to accommodate our peak travel season while continuously looking for new possibilities to open new markets in the coming years.” All three organizations, Boeing, Avolon and Monoglian Airlines are all very pleased with this major decision.
