#MIAT, Mongolian Airlines welcomes Boeing787 Dreamliner!
Embarking on an adventure to Mongolia is about to get even more convenient and exciting, as MIAT or Mongolian Airlines, the esteemed flag-carrier of Mongolia, announces its plans to initiate direct flights from the US starting in 2024. This monumental development is set to redefine the way travelers access the captivating landscapes and rich cultural tapestry of Mongolia.
Headquartered in the heart of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, MIAT has been an instrumental player in shaping the country's aviation landscape since its inception. The journey of aviation in Mongolia can be traced back to the historical moment of May 25, 1925, when a Junkers F 13, gifted by the USSR to the Mongolian People's Republic, gracefully touched down in Ulaanbaatar. Fast forward to 1946, the Civil Air Transport Department took its fledgling steps with a fleet of 8 aircraft. This marked the commencement of direct flights connecting Ulaanbaatar with neighboring provinces such as Selenge, Bulgan, Arkhangai, Övörkhangai, Khentii, Sükhbaatar, and Dornod. Moreover, the department ventured into limited charter and unscheduled airmail flights, linking even the most remote corners of the nation.
In the realm of international air travel, the Chinggis Khaan International Airport, also known as the New Ulaanbaatar International Airport, takes center stage as Mongolia's sole international gateway. This modern marvel commenced its operations on the notable date of July 4, 2021, seamlessly replacing its predecessor, the Buyant-Ukhaa International Airport.
At present, MIAT has solidified its presence by offering direct flights to prominent global destinations such as Beijing, Seoul, Busan, Moscow, Frankfurt, Istanbul, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Osaka. The anticipation for their forthcoming direct flights from the United States has ignited a wave of excitement among travel enthusiasts and adventurers alike. With this remarkable expansion of flight options, traversing the globe to reach the enchanting expanses of Mongolia has become more accessible and alluring than ever before.
As we eagerly await the dawn of this new era in transcontinental travel, now is the perfect time to start envisioning your future sojourns across the vast landscapes of Mongolia. The prospect of embarking on unforgettable journeys through Mongolia's rugged terrains, ancient traditions, and hospitable communities is within reach, thanks to the forthcoming direct flights from the US by MIAT.
In the meantime, we invite you to plan your transformative escapades in Mongolia with us, as we prepare to embark on this exciting new chapter of exploration and discovery in 2024. Stay tuned for more updates and embark on the journey of a lifetime with us!
