Was curious about why MAIT Mongolian flys to BERLIN , rather than AMS. FRA . LHR etc... Berlin seems like a odd destination from GERMANY

MIAT Mongolian Airlines has introduced Airbus A330-300 aircraft service, which is entering service on NONSTOP Ulan Baatar – Berlin Tegel and Ulan Baatar – Tokyo Narita route. The A330 service operates from 01JUL10 to 09SEP10, for 10 weeks.

Are they trying to get NRT-BERLIN traffic?

If I remember correctly Berlin service predates the fall of the Berlin Wall and was extension of their Moscow flight.

There is a relatively huge Mongolian population in Berlin, and there exist strong ties between Mongolia and Germany. I dare say that I wasn't aware of this either, so I already had two threads running on this subject:

Mongolian Airlines -- Why To TXL? (by Tobias2702 Mar 9 2010 in Civil Aviation)?threadid=4738540&searchid=4738540&s=mongolian#ID4738540

Still, I think FRA would be the better choice rather than TXL (at least as long as AB does not have a real hub at Berlin). I cannot imagine OM fills the whole plane just with O&D-passengers.

BTW it's MIAT, not MAIT.

Berlin has a large Mongolian population.

I tried to book them about 2 months out from TXL-ULN last week and the cheapest fare I could get from them was 5200€ in Y class. I hope that was because the plane was already fully booked because if not it must be completely empty with those prices.

I've just done a dummy booking (for October) for Berlin-ULN, comparing OM and SU, both showing at around 1000 USD for the return trip. Even the travel times are pretty much the same:
On SU, one leaves SXF at 14:15 and arrives at ULN at 06:10, with OM its 14:00 ex TXL and 05:45 at ULN (return 07:50-13:25 on SU versus 08:25-12:00 on OM).

Does OM fly through SVO? Why are the times similar even though SU has to connect in Moscow?

Yes the flight currently is routing ULN-SVO-TXL-SVO-ULN.
Once the A333 is operational it will become ULN - TXL nonstop.

And yes SU codeshares on the OM-flight (between TXL and SVO).
