International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC) has delivered a Boeing 737-700 to Eznis Airways.
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.
“The addition of the Boeing 737-700 to our fleet marks an important strategic milestone for Eznis Airways. This new aircraft will allow us to provide quality service on international routes from Ulaanbaatar,” said Munkhsukh Sukhbaatar, Chief Executive Officer of Eznis Airways.
“ILFC is proud to provide Eznis Airways’ first 737 aircraft. This aircraft is clearly an important milestone in the airline’s efforts to secure its place as a leading airline in this rapidly growing region and increase its international market share. We look forward to a long and successful business partnership with ILFC’s newest customer,” said ILFC Head of Asia-Pacific Dave Nixon.
Eznis Airways currently owns the largest air fleet in the country 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.
