Eznis Airways has signed a Letter of Intent to purchase two Avro RJ85 regional jets from BAE Systems.  The aircraft are scheduled to arrive in Mongolia in May and June 2011, and both will have a capacity of 93 seats, allowing Eznis to meet the growing demand for quality air transport services in Mongolia.
Commenting on the purchase, Chief Executive Officer of Eznis Airways, Mr. S.Munkhsukh, has said, “Deliveries of the Avro RJ 85s will be yet another important step towards our aim to become the No. 1 choice for regional air service in North Central Asia by connecting Mongolia to nearby international markets. The Avro RJ85 is a four-engine aircraft that provides reliable, safe and distinctive performance.  Moreover, it is the only jet engine aircraft approved for operation on gravel runways, which is ideal for the conditions of our country.  The arrival of this aircraft will be an important event not only in the history of our airline, but also for Mongolia’s aviation industry as the Avro RJ85 is a new aircraft type for Mongolia.”
Presently, Eznis Airways operates four 34-seat Saab 340B aircraft on its route network serving 14 domestic, scheduled, and charter destinations as well as two short-haul international markets - Hailar (China) and Ulan-Ude (Russia). Eznis has signed an agreement with Lufthansa Technik Switzerland GmbH to receive technical services for the future Avro RJ85 fleet covering engineering, maintenance, material, engine and training services.
