In 2017, the leading national carrier MIAT Mongolian Airlines decided to expand its fleet by leasing two 737 Max aircraft from the global leasing company Avolon. The first of the planes is due to arrive on 21 January, 2019.
Previously, MIAT bought an 767-300 ER aircraft from Boeing with a USD 20 million loan from the Netherland’s ING Bank. The Mongolian carrier refunded the loan to ING Bank in December, 2018.
The 737 Max family offers flexibility, efficiency and lower per-seat cost in the single-aisle market and is the fastest-selling aircraft in Boeing history, accumulating more than 3,600 orders.
