Narita – Phnom Penh direct flight was launched by ANA at the end of September 2016

Good evening. It is Yuichiro Kai who experienced internship in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
I have been visiting Cambodia when my work is off since I finished my internship. Since this month ANA made the direct flight of Narita – Phnom Penh into service, I flew to Phnom Penh by the direct flight of ANA at this time.

In this article I will report my experience.

A seal was printed for the baggage so I put it on my luggage and deposited it with a counter.

After departure inspection, I exchanged the necessary dollar for visa acquisition after arrival at the airport,

Boarding starts at 25:00 for departure at 10:50.

Comparison with connecting flights

If you are going to Cambodia so far, you need to make connections such as Bangkok, Thailand, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

In case of via Bangkok, it takes 7 hours 15 minutes by Haneda ~ Bangkok, it takes 5 hours 30 minutes by Haneda ~ Ho Chi Minh, and it takes 2 hours by Haneda ~ Ho Chi Minh to transfer and preparing for connecting, then another 1 hour by airplane to Cambodia from there It took a total of 8 to 10 hours to do so.
Especially Bangkok airport is quite wide, it is quite physical difficulty to move after arrival.
Considering the trouble and time, the direct flight is considerably convenient and recommended.
*For business purposes, arrive at Phnom Penh at 15:10 and arrive late in the late afternoon

About VISA

After arrival, we need to prepare a photograph and 30 dollars to get sightseeing VISA.
There is an ATM near the VISA counter, so if you have a PLUS compatible cash card you can withdraw it on the spot.
