JAL adds direct flights

Japan Airlines (JAL) began flying a new route linking three Japanese cities with

Siem Reap on November 20 using Boeing 767s. Initially the company aims to operate

three monthly charter flights between Siem Reap and Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka. JAL

becomes the sixteenth carrier to service Siem Reap International Airport, where passenger

traffic at the airport is already up 21 percent this year from 2006. The airport

itself is evolving to meet the demands with a major expansion of its international

boarding lounge and the runway apron with new parking slots for aircraft.
