Boeing Delivers Direct Purchase 767-300ER To MIAT Mongolian Airlines

Boeing has announced that the airplane builder has delivered a 767-300ER (extended range) jet to MIAT Mongolian Airlines on 13 May 2013, the first-ever direct purchase delivery to the airline.

"This is a momentous step forward for MIAT Mongolian Airlines as we continue to enhance our fleet," said Jargalsaikhan Gungaa, President and CEO of MIAT Mongolian Airlines, according to the Boeing statement. "We are pleased with the comfort, range and payload of the new 767-300ER and we look forward to introducing it into our long-haul fleet."

Mongolia's flag carrier completed a historic order in 2011 at the U.S. State Department in Washington, D.C., marking the first time in more than two decades that the airline extended its route network by purchasing Boeing airplanes instead of leasing them.

"This is a momentous step forward for MIAT Mongolian Airlines as we continue to enhance our fleet," said Jargalsaikhan Gungaa, President and CEO of MIAT Mongolian Airlines, according to the Boeing statement. "We are pleased with the comfort, range and payload of the new 767-300ER and we look forward to introducing it into our long-haul fleet."
