Japanese low cost carrier Peach Aviation has made amendments to its summer 2014 flight schedule, "due to an unavoidable shortage of flight crew personnel," the airline said.
The amendments affect flights from May 19 and will result in cancellations of some flights.
Two flights on the Osaka (Kansai) – Hong Kong route scheduled for June have been confirmed as cancelled.
The airline said that any further changes to the flight schedule from July onwards will be announced on April 30.
Customers who would like to change their flights to a different Peach flight will be able to do so free of charge. In the event that a new flight is unavailable, or if the affected customer is unable to travel during the desired period, the airline said that the airfare will be refunded.
A statement issued by the airline, said, "The increasingly competitive environment has created a sudden rise in demand for flight crew throughout the industry, leading to a shortage in personnel. In addition, there has been an unexpected number of absences due to illness among Peach’s flight crew ... We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this will cause to all affected customers."© Asia Travel Tips
