During your stay in Mongolia, we will often propose you to take at least one domestic flight. In effects, the country is huge and the track often very hard. A flight can easily make you spare three or four days on the road, and this time can be spent hiking or sharing good moments with families. These flights have a real cost, because besides the cost of your own ticket, there's also your guide's one and the cost of the driver who will drive, often for two entire days, to join you in Ulan Bator or in the city where you'll land. Of course, this cost depends on the number of participants, but it generally varies between 180 and 220 euros (133 – 162 GBP ; 204 – 249 USD) per person. If you can afford it, it's obvious that taking one or several domestic flights will make your travel more pleasant, while travellers with a more restricted budget will prefer to make all journeys by jeep or bus.
There are only two companies left that have domestic flights in Mongolia: Hunnu Air and Aeromongolia. We principally work with Hunnu Air, and more rarely with Aeromongolia, notably to fly towards West (Khovd ans Olgii).
The two companies fly with Fokker F50 that can house up to 50 passengers (and 4 crew members). The baggage allowances is 10 kilograms (22 pounds) in the aircraft hold and 5 kilograms (11 pounds) in cabin. For the hold luggage, companies are not too strict if the weight is 1 or 2 kilograms (2,2, - 4,4, pounds) heavier, but you will systematically have to pay an extra if it's more than 2 kilograms (4,4 pounds) heavier. But the extra is reasonable since it's comprised between 1,20 and 1,50 euros (0,88 – 1,10 GBP ; 1,36 – 1,70 USD) per extra kilogram, according to destinations.
