Eznis Airways fleet

Only the second direct air link between Europe and Mongolia will be launched by the Mongolian low-cost airline Eznis Airways. From 10 July, it will fly twice a week between Ulaanbaatar and Prague.

Eznis Airways is a renewed airline based at Ulaanbaatar UBN airport. It is one of the youngest airlines in the IATA association, having been awarded membership at the 80th IATA Annual General Assembly during the World Air Transport Summit held in Dubai on 2-4 June 2024.

The flights will be operated by a wide-body Airbus A330-200 aircraft, registration JU-1332, with a total capacity for 256 passengers. It is also the only aircraft currently operated by the airline.

In addition to Prague, Eznis Airways is also expected to start flying to Hong Kong, Busan and Chongju.

Mongolia's second direct link to Europe

So far, the only direct route from Mongolia to Europe is operated by Mongolia's national airline MIAT to Frankfurt, Germany.

Ulaanbaatar - Prague

The new route with Eznis Airways from Ulaanbaatar to Prague will have a flight time of 7 hours and 50 minutes and is currently scheduled to run from 10 July to 26 October, the duration of the summer schedule.

The flights will operate on Wednesdays and Saturdays at the following times:

Route Flight number Day Departure Arrival
UBN-PRG MG714 Wednesday, Saturday 17:15 20:15
