The United States and Mongolia held a press conference today to announce a major strengthening of the strategic partnership between the two countries. Part of this announcement included mention of direct flights being planned for 2024.

The flights would provide a boost to tourism, trade, and business between the United States and Mongolia, but I’m wondering which airline will connect the two nations. Where will the plane stop along the way? A direct flight may have stops along the route, but passengers stay on the same aircraft and it generally operates under the same flight number. A nonstop flight, on the other hand, goes directly from the departure to the destination without any stops.


Some of the other highlights of the visit between Prime Minister L. Oyun-Erdene and Vice President Kamala Harris include:

  • A Joint Statement will be issued on the Strategic Third Neighbor Partnership, which supports the development of the two countries’ relationship.
  • An Air Transport Agreement will be signed so that the flights can be introduced.
  • A new Economic Cooperation Roadmap for the Strategic Third Neighbor Partnership will be signed to strengthen economic ties.

Asiana, Korean Air, Jeju Air, MIAT, and T’Way Air currently serve Mongolia’s Chinggis Khaan International Airport (UBN).

Anthony’s Take: I’m curious as to which airline would offer this service and if flights launch next year. I’ll report back on further announcements.

Miat will fly either to Seattle or San Francisco with 787, which will be delivered this year. Other airlines probably won’t bother
