MIAT Mongolian Airlines is apparently going to lose the word "MIAT" and be known as Mongolian Airlines. "MIAT" actually refers to the civil aviation administration along the lines of "CAAC" in China.
The first Boeing 737-800 will be delivered to Ulaanbaatar in early July 2002, and after a short period, it will be deployed on flights to Japan (Narita and Osaka), China (Beijing) and Soth Korea (Seoul). And from a source within Mongolian Airlines (OM/MGL), the B737-800 will be equipped with the extended wing-tips!
