Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ A railway called “Aero Express” will be built in a route from Ulaanbaatar central station to the new international airport in Khoshig valley under construction to travel passengers by railbus, a short distance train.

A memorandum on the railway construction was signed Wednesday by E.Bat-Uul, the Mayor of Ulaanbaatar city; and L.Purevbaatar, head of the Ulaanbaatar Railway Mongolia-Russia joint venture.
