Mongolia’s second largest airline, Hunnu Air is contributing revenues of its own to the economy’s booming 12% GDP growth with expanded routes and new digital services, promoted with the latest Abacu technology.
An Abacus e-ticketing capability will now streamline business and leisure bookings to build volumes from Hong Kong and Bangkok, as well as attracting new traffic onto its Hailar and Inner Mongolian routes.
Seasonal services to the fast moving feeder markets of Shanghai in June, Haneda (Tokyo) and Sanya (Hainan) this winter will also be made more accessible with Abacus distributing the content to travel agents at over 20,000 locations in the region.
Hunnu Air intends to use Abacus to promote charter flights from South Korea’s popular Jeju into Mongolia’s capital and hub, Ulaanbaatar soon.
Margad Byambajav, VP and CCO for Hunnu Air explained the strategy, “We are working with the region’s technology leader Abacus to make it easier to arrange travel to Mongolia from Asia’s main Hong Kong, Thai, Malaysian and Taiwanese feeder markets, as well as at home with our domestic network. We aim to encourage more corporate bookings and improve access to the country’s many unique tourism experiences, leveraging our nomadic cultural heritage, especially through the summer peak with the July Naadam festival.” Hunnu Air (formerly Mongolian Airlines Group) is investing in new Airbus A330-200s in anticipation of the increased demand, enhancing its A319 fleet.
