ANA to open new cargo route Narita - Bangkok - Jakarta - Narita Capturing strong demand for cargo flights across ASEAN Region



TOKYO 3 August, 2015 - In response to the strong growth in demand for air cargo services in the ASEAN region, ANA is launching a Narita - Bangkok - Jakarta - Narita cargo flight route from September 2, 2015 by freighter aircraft. The service will increase the frequency of cargo flights between Narita and Bangkok and will be ANA's first ever cargo flight between Bangkok and Jakarta. The Bangkok - Jakarta flight will be ANA's first year-round international cargo service between two non-domestic airports.

The Narita - Bangkok - Jakarta - Narita route will fly twice a week from September 2 until October 24, 2015. From October 27, it will increase to three flights per week. It will meet a diverse range of customer needs by increasing the volume of available cargo space between the airports as demand for air cargo services increases, particularly for goods such as automobile components and fresh produce.

ANA currently operates a network of 43 airfreight routes, consisting of direct flights departing from and arriving at Narita and Kansai Airports in addition to various routes that fly via ANA's cargo hub at Okinawa's Naha Airport.
