Thai VietJet Air successfully launched its first direct flight on the Bangkok-Ulaanbaatar-Bangkok route on June 4th. The company will operate an Airbus A321 aircraft with 165 seats, and the direct flight will be available every Sunday.

Previously, MIAT operated only seasonal flights to Thailand from October to April. With the start of Thai Vietjet Air flights, favorable conditions will be created for travelers, tourists, business representatives, and citizens from both sides.

Mongolia has announced 2023-2025 as the “Years to Visit Mongolia” and is working towards receiving 1 million foreign tourists per year. Southeast Asia, along with China, Russia, South Korea, and Japan, is a significant market for tourism in Mongolia.

The country is known for its unique landscapes, rich cultural heritage, and nomadic traditions, which make it an increasingly popular destination for tourists. As part of the “Years to Visit Mongolia” campaign, the Parliament has approved an amendment to the Law on Tourism. The amendment prioritizes the development of adventure and eco-tourism in national parks.

Mongolia is home to stunning national parks such as Gorkhi-Terelj, Khustain Nuruu, and Altai Tavan Bogd, attracting nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. The country offers various adventure tourism opportunities, including trekking, mountaineering, wildlife watching, and bird-watching. Its diverse landscapes provide an ideal setting for outdoor adventures and exploration.
