With the Eznis Airways Ulaanbaatar–Hailar (in Inner Mongolia) flight now stopping there, Choibalsan in Dornod province has become since March 10 the third Mongolian city to boast an international airport, after Ulaanbaatar and Ulgii in Bayan-Ulgii province. For the time being, however, only Mongolian and Chinese nationals are served by the immigration facilities there. Passengers from other nations should be able to use the airport before long.
A months-long program of coordinated preparatory work by relevant agencies has seen Customs and passport control personnel trained and the airport terminal given a new look.
The people in the three eastern provinces of Dornod, Hentii and Sukhbaatar can now fly to the Hailar area with which they have substatntial trade and cultural relations. Eznis has announced special OW promo fares of MNT49,999 between Choibalsan and Hailar for the first two months.
