We’re going to enjoy a non-stop flight Ulaanbaatar - Istanbul - Ulaanbaatar in the upcoming January 2020 according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Mongolia. Turkish Airlines are launching the non-stop flight service due to the Ambassador of Mongolia in Turkey, H.E. Mr.Bold Ravdan’s request to start non-stop flights before two governments’ joint meeting which will be held in March 2020.
The “old” route was through Manas Airport, Bishkek, Kyrgyz Republic, which continues for 11h 30m but now it’s decreased by almost three hours and it will become 8h 40m flight.
It’s the seventh non-stop flight from/to capitals from/to Mongolia.
The Ulaanbaatar - Istanbul - Ulaanbaatar flight service is scheduled to depart at 10:50 a.m. and arrive in Istanbul at 02:30 p.m. local time and the return flight will take off at 07:55 p.m. and land in Ulaanbaatar at 09:20 a.m. local time. Luckily, you can have your night sleep on the way back to UB from Istanbul.
Passengers who take the flights are allowed to carry one piece of checked baggage, up to 30 kilograms, as well as a carry-on bag weighing up to 8 kilograms, according to the Turkish Airlines website.
