ANA will launch flights linking Narita and Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, on 1 September.
The flights will become the only direct air service between Japan and Cambodia. With this new service, Cambodia becomes the eighth country served by ANA in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
The announcement comes on the 60th anniversary year of the conclusion of a friendship treaty between Japan and Cambodia. By launching the first direct flights from Japan, ANA aims to contribute to the further development of friendly relations and bring the world closer to the dynamic Cambodia market.
ANA, as part of its dual hub strategy in Tokyo, strengthened its international network by launching new daily services from Narita / Haneda airports to Houston in the USA, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, Brussels in Belgium and Sydney in Australia.
This is aimed to help meet demand at Narita for international transfers between North America and Asia, and at Haneda for international-domestic connections.
ANA is also expanding its fully-flat seat service in Business Class. This summer, the service will be introduced to the Vancouver route and thus will be available on all six European routes and all 10 North American routes. Three Asian flights, including Mumbai, will also be equipped with fully-flat seats.
During the first half of fiscal 2016, ANA will start introducing the new Boeing 787-9 configured for mid-haul international services primarily on Asian routes. It will be equipped with fully-flat Business Class seats and Premium Economy seats.
