Frequency of flights en route Ulaanbaatar-Frankfurt to be increasedPolitics
Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. At its regular meeting today on May 4, the Cabinet made a decision to increase the frequency of flights being conducted by the national flag carrier, MIAT Mongolian Airlines, en route Ulaanbaatar-Frankfurt to five times per week.
However, as the flight frequency will create a larger deficit for the airline, the Government will provide a subsidy for the company. Corresponding officials were also tasked to introduce possible solutions for liberalizing the country’s air transport sector, and issuing VAT refunds to foreign tourists at next week’s Cabinet meeting.
The Cabinet’s decision to increase the flow of air transport was made in connection with a meeting that took place between Prime Minister L.Oyun-Erdene and representatives of the country’s tourism sector last week.
