Eva Air has had to cancel some flights after its cabin crew went on strike in a dispute over pay and working conditions.

Cabin crew members of the Taoyuan Flight Attendants Union (TFAU) staged their walkout on Thursday (20 June) after talks with the airline broke down.

Eva Air said it was “deeply disappointed that TFAU initiated a strike without providing prior notice”.

“Eva sincerely apologises to passengers and everyone affected by this strike for the disruptions caused by cancelled and rescheduled flights,” added the airline in a statement. “We are also sorry for the public disturbance caused by the strike’s impacts.”

Eva said it had “deployed an emergency response team” following the walkout by cabin crew.

“Our priority is to minimise inconvenience to our passengers without compromising flight safety,” the company added. “Eva is working with other airlines and transferring as many passengers as possible to alternative flights.”
