  • Mongolia flights suffer as last An-24 is retired

    News | 11 Jan 2005 00:00

    <p>MIAT Mongolian Airlines is retiring its last Antonov An-24 this week, leaving it at least temporarily without any domestic aircraft.</p> <p>Privately owned Aero Mongolia will fill some of the void by adding three domestic destinations, for a total of 10, but seven of Mongolia's 17 airports will be left without any service. Several of these airports are too austere for Aero Mongolia's fleet of two Fokker 50 turboprops and the carrier aims to add a Fokker 100 twinjet in May rather than a niche, short-field aircraft.</p> <p>The Mongolian government is now considering proposals to quickly lease replacement aircraft such as the Antonov An-140 from CIS vendors. MIAT is also looking at putting one of its several grounded An-24s through a costly life extension programme, but the government may decide to let the flag carrier drop its highly unprofitable domestic operation. </p> <p>MIAT continues to operate an Airbus A310 and Boeing 737-800 internationally.</p>http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Mongolia-flights-suffer-as-last-An-24-is-retired-192239/
  • MIAT looks to rationalise with 757s

    News | 05 Jul 2004 23:00

    <p>MIAT Mongolian Airlines is considering replacing its Airbus A310 and Boeing 737-800 with two Boeing 757s in the next phase of its restructuring, which could result in privatisation next year.</p> <p>Commercial director Sean Canning says MIAT needs to simplify its fleet before the restructuring - which so far has resulted in cost reductions of more than 20% and a forecasted 2004 profit of $2.5 million - is completed.</p> <p>&quot;One of the problems we have is the fleet,&quot; says Canning. &quot;We really think we need rationalisation.&quot;</p> <p>A study commissioned by MIAT to determine which aircraft type could meet both its long-haul and short-haul requirements favours the 757. </p> <p>Unlike the 737-700/800 or Airbus A320, the 757 has the range to serve Moscow non-stop without payload restrictions and is the right size for most MIAT routes.</p> <p>MIAT now operates its single 214-seat A310 to Berlin via Moscow and one 162-seat 737-800 on routes within Asia.

  • Boeing pips Airbus to MIAT revamp

    News | 29 Apr 2002 23:00

    <p>MIAT-Mongolian Airlines has selected the Boeing 737-800 over the rival Airbus A320 for a long-delayed fleet upgrade.</p> <p>The carrier confirms it will initially lease one 737-800 from GATX Financial for service entry in July to serve China, Japan and South Korea<I> (Flight International</I>, 1-7 January). It plans to add a second of the type from around 2005.</p> <p>MIAT will use the new aircraft on international routes, replacing two Boeing 727-200Advs, which are around 30 years old. The carrier's only other aircraft used on international routes is an A310-300 leased from Airbus.</p> <p>MIAT has been considering a fleet modernisation for years - but it has been repeatedly deferred because of financial difficulties.</p> <p>The Mongolian government decided a year ago that MIAT should be partially privatised, and tentative plans call for new investors to be brought in by the second half of next year.</p>http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Boeing-pips-Airbus-to-MIAT-revamp-146903/
