AKIPRESS.COM - MIAT Mongolian Airlines, national flag carrier of Mongolia, has reached a lease agreement with the Air Lease Corporation, American aircraft leasing company regarding Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft capable of long-haul direct flight to the USA, Montsame reports.
The plane is expected to arrive in Mongolia and put into operation by 2021 and the sides yet to agree on price.
Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, a wide-body aircraft with great range flexibility and twin-engines, uses 20 percent less fuel for comparable missions than similarly-sized airplanes of Boeing, such as Boeing 767. New engines, increased use of lightweight composite materials and more efficient systems applications each contribute to the 787's overall performance.
MIAT Mongolian Airlines is working to open four new destinations and plans to operate direct flight to the USA starting 2021 after gaining the nonstop flight permit.
