Mongolian Airlines has concluded a leasing agreement with Boeing with the assistance of Avolon Aerospace Leasing for two aircraft, which the national carrier is to lease for 12 years starting from 2019.

MIAT had previously agreed to buy three aircraft from Boeing, with the first received in 2013, but it has shifted its strategy to leasing.

The remaining two Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft are expected to arrive in Mongolia during the first half of 2019.
