Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ The “Chingis Khaan” international airport has accepted a new transit hall and six parking areas of planes in frames of preparation works for the upcoming 11th ASEM Summit. A ceremony took place to open the new facilities on Monday.

With an area of some 2,000 square meters, the transit hall included arrivals/departure and business rooms, commercial and service spots and recreation room, therefore the airport expanded its capacity to receive about 1,200 passengers per hour, officials said.

Thanks to the new transit hall, the airport has become able to exploit all its capacity and to boost regular flights to cities of neighbor countries, for example, local flights of Chinese airlines can perform flights through Mongolian territories.

Apart from the transit hall, parking areas for nine planes have put into use so far, and the airport’s runway has been empowered ahead of the ASEM11.

Mongolia is geographically located in the most favorable place for transit airlines connecting Asia and Europe, so the new transit hall will augment a budget revenue from the navigation in a way of increasing the number of transit flights through the airport.
