International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC) (Los Angeles), a wholly owned subsidiary of American International Group, Inc. (AIG), has announced it delivered a Boeing 737-700 aircraft to Eznis Airways (Ulaanbaatar), the largest Mongolian privately owned airline.
The new aircraft will expand Eznis Airways’ international operations and be used to better serve the country’s rapidly growing air traffic demand. As of the first quarter of 2012, inbound and outbound international traffic in Mongolia has increased by 30% compared to the same period last year.
Eznis Airways currently owns the largest air fleet in Mongolia and the addition of this Boeing-manufactured airplane marks its 7th aircraft. The 737 series is a medium-range twin-engine narrow-body jet airliner and is the best-selling jet airliner in the history of aviation. The aircraft can fly nonstop to Beijing, Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong from Ulaanbaatar.
Eznis Airways was established on January 6, 2006 by Newcom Group, one of the largest holding companies of Mongolia. The airline operates domestic scheduled and charter flights to 11 destinations in 9 aimags (provinces) of Mongolia and operates international scheduled service to Hailar in China’s Inner Mongolia region and Ulan-Ude in Russian Federation’s Buryat Republic, and charter services to points in China, Russia and Kazakhstan.
