Mongolian Hunnu Air receives its first jetliner

Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia - On May 24, Mongolia's regional airline operator Hunnu Air has received its first jetliner. The aircraft registered JU-8811 is an Embraer ERJ-190LR.

The 8-year old aircraft, which previously served in China Southern's regional fleet, was leased from Hong Kong-based lessor CDB Aviation.

The first jet-propelled aircraft of Hunnu Air features six seats in Business Class and 92 in Economy Class. CDB Aviation will deliver three more Embraer E190 to the regional carrier by the end of 2021. The second E190 E-jet will join the airline's small fleet next year.

Hunnu Air removed its old Fokker 50s from the fleet earlier this year. The airline plans to fill the gap with more modern planes.

Besides its newly arrived ERJ-190LR, the Mongolian airline currently operates two ATR 72-500 on domestic routes. The only international line in the Hunnu Air's network is the city of Hailar in China.
