Besides national air carrier - MIAT Mongolian Airlines, there are numerous other domestic airlines such as Aero Mongolia, Eznis Airways (discontinued) and Hunnu Air that operate within Mongolia.

Ulaanbaatar’s Chinggis Khaan airport is Mongolia’s major international airport; the code is ULN. There are also two other airports that have international status. They're located in Khovd and Choibalsan towns and serve flights that connects to Hailar and Urumqi cities of China and mainly used by local passengers. Almost each province center has its own airport most of them with paved runways.

In summer period (June, July and August) most flights are full, so book well in advance.

Currently, air fleet of national Mongolian airlines consists of Boeing 767-300(ER), Boeing 737-800 and Fokker-50 types of aircraft.

ARE THERE ANY SPECIAL AIRPORT TRANSFER SERVICES AT ULAANBAATAR AIRPORT?

Although Urban Transport Center of Ulaanbaatar City together with Chinggis Khaan International Airport had launched "Express Bus" service between airport and Ulaanbaatar downtown in July, 2013, it was terminated as of September that year.

There are some private taxis operating at the airport, however, foreigners are advised to exercise extra caution when dealing with them as there is no fixed rate and drivers who hardly speak English tend to unexpectedly raise fares at the end of trip.

There is, however, specialized private transfer service with fixed rates, which you can book in advance.

 

BY TRAIN

Mongolia has railway connecting both Russia and China. You can catch the either Transsiberian train from Russia (Moscow, Irkutsk or any other major stations) or China (Ereenhot and Beijing). Getting a ticket in Ulaanbaatar can be very difficult during summer tourist season, so you need to plan well ahead.

International Railway Ticketing Office sells tickets to Irkutsk and Moscow (Russia), and Beijing, Ereenhot and Hohhot (China).

 

BY CAR

You may enter Mongolia through border towns of Zamyn Uud (from China) and Sukhbaatar (from Russia). However, it is strongly recommended to use train or air transport to enter and leave Mongolia as crossing borders by car is quite complicated and time consuming due to the checking procedures at the border.
