EVA Air to cancel 852 flights till June 28 due to flight attendants’ strike, travel chaos

Published on : Monday, June 24, 2019

EVA Airways Corp is forced to cancel hundreds of flights due to the flight attendants’ strike. The airline will scrap a total of 852 flights in the eight days to June 28, as per the text message of EVA Air on Monday. Over 100,000 passengers are going to be affected as per the airline. The attendants are demanding higher pay and better working conditions. Their union had voted to strike last week after negotiations with the company failed.

 

 

 

Routes that will be affected would be those between Taipei and Hong Kong — one of the world’s busiest international air routes; as well as from Taiwan to Japan, Singapore, London and New York.

 

 

 

More than 150 flights of EVA Air were cancelled between June 20 and June 23, resulting in about New Taiwan dollars 580 million (U.S. dollars19 million) of lost revenue, the company said in a statement on Sunday. Its shares have dropped by 4.5 per cent since the close of trading on Thursday. Form from Sunday (June 23) to Friday June 28, more than 640 flights will be cancelled.

 

 

 

This the second strike in Taiwan in 2019. Staff of China Airlines Ltd, Taiwan’s largest carrier, took action in February, stopping work for seven days. Pilots reached a deal with China Airlines on compensation that was estimated to add about New Taiwan dollars 114 million to the carrier’s annual costs.

 

 

 

The cancellations of Evergreen Airways flights are leading to travel chaos as the peak summer season sets in.
