- Hunnu Air, the new name for Mongolian Airlines, launched its first European service last week, with the introduction on 9 June of flights from Ulaanbator (ULN) to Paris CDG (CDG). The twice-weekly flights on the 7,040-kilometre route requires the airline’s A319 to make a technical stop in Ekaterinburg in Russia. The airline is planning to acquire an A330 to enable the service to operate non-stop from 2015. No other carrier currently operates this route.
