Commenting on the 3-Star Airline Certification for MIAT Mongolian Airlines, Edward Plaisted of Skytrax said: "We are pleased to recognise the ever-improving standards of this small airline, which
is now meeting a 3-Star Airline rating level. We found across all of the recent Audit analysis that MIAT has some real strengths in the staff service delivery areas, and it was
aspects of somewhat outdated product that prevented a higher achievement being recorded. This airline is also impacted by an old-style home base facility at Ulaanbaatar Airport, which I understand is another area
which will improve in the future."
MIAT Mongolian Airlines operates international scheduled services from its base at Chinggis Khaan International Airport, Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The route network
includes routes from Ulaanbaatar to Beijing, Seoul, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Berlin and Moscow. The present fleet of aircraft includes Boeing 737-800 and leased Boeing 767-300ER.
Product standards for will improve further in 2013, when MIAT Mongolian Airlines receives it's first direct-from-factory Boeing 767-300ER. This aircraft will offer 25 flat-bed seats in
Business class, and an Economy class seat pitch of 31-32 inches. Offering full AVOD entertainment system and PTV screens for all passengers will enhance the MIAT inflight product standards.
Other changes and introductions by the airline during 2013 will include revised onboard catering, new amenity kits, and associated comfort items such as pillows and blankets.
