Flight distances between airplanes flying across Mongolia are switching to international standards, from 90 km to 30 km, on September 18.
The Civil Aviation Authority of Mongolia spoke with journalists about the upgrade and equipment. In order to implement this change, they have installed new facilities and trained staff, and they are about to install two radio locators soon.
The radio locator is a device that reports the direction and height of airplanes flying over Mongolia.
Before 2013, Mongolian aviation officials supervised airplanes manually by connecting with the flight team and noting their location and altitude. At that time, the distance between airplanes was 150 km.
By installing radio locators, airplanes flying over Mongolia will be counted, one by one. There will be advantages including increased income from flights, 80 to 100 USD per 100 km, and increased airplane travel.
The International Air Transportation Association applauds the change.
Czech Airlines, FedEX global courier delivery services, Philippine Airlines and Israir Airlines now have permission to conduct flights over Mongolia, and two of the companies have started the new flight paths.
Kh.Enkhbaatar, chief of Flight Service at the Civil Aviation Authority of Mongolia stated, “Mongolian airspace is divided into five sectors. Maintaining a distance of 90 km was hard for foreign pilots, because they have to minimize and change their speed. But now they will conduct flights at the same speed.”
Nearly 230 airplanes fly over Mongolia every 24 hours. The longest flight path is from China to Russia, at an altitude of over 1,500 km. There are 15 foreign airspaces in Mongolia including nine belonging to Russia and six belonging to China.
