History

MIAT Mongolian Airlines was formed in 1956 and was known at different times as, Air Mongol or Mongolian Airlines. It started with the help of Aeroflot and began flights on 7 July 1956 using an Antonov An-2 from Ulan Bator to Irkutsk, although the airline also used Soviet-built DC-3s (Li-2s) for flights to international destinations like Beijing and Moscow. During the 1960s and 1970s the airline equipped with Antonov An-24 and An-26 twin turboprops. Tupolev Tu-154 jets were introduced in the late 1970s. In 1992, MIAT bought five Chinese Harbin Y-12 commuter airliners. Also by 1992, MIAT had acquired a Boeing 727-200 jet from Korean Air with one more following in 1994. The Boeing 727 jets were later discharged. An Airbus A310 and Boeing 737 were later acquired by MIAT. Later on in 2003 through 2008 MIAT's Antonov fleet was discharged because they were over their warranty. In April 2008, Miat received its second Boeing 737-800 aircraft on lease from CIT Aerospace.[3] In July 2008, MIAT stopped domestic flights completely, but in May 2009 the company announced that it would resume domestic flights to Mörön and Khovd by Boeing 737-800 [4]. MIAT plans to expand international routes and started to test fly to Jeju island of Korea and planning to fly to Hong-Kong and Sanya in China.

MIAT Mongolian Airlines is a fully state owned airline with a total of 1034 employees.
