On Monday 27 April, ‘MIAT’ Mongolian Airlines, conducted an international cargo flight using its new Boeing 767-300 aircraft, taking its first step to enter the international cargo transport market.
The coronavirus pandemic has hit international air travel in a devastating way, resulting in loss of revenue, layoffs, limited operations and companies around the world going under. During this difficult time, MIAT is to conduct flights between Asia and Europe to transport various medicine, personal protective gear, face masks and medical equipment.
In July, 2019, Mongolia received its first Boeing 737-300 cargo aircraft. With a weight of 20,000 tons, the plane can travel up to 5,250 km.
Mongolian Airways Cargo LLC is planning to conduct regular transportation flights with the Boeing 737-300 aircraft to four cities namely; Beijing, Huh Hot, Hong Kong and Seoul.
