TAIPEI (CNA) — EVA Airways announced on July 8 that its flight schedule will be restored to normal from July 20, thanks to the return of its workforce after the airline and the union reached a settlement on July 6.

The strike, which started on June 20, will lead to cancellations of 2,200 flights by July 20 and affect 400,000 passengers, according to the carrier.

After the airline and the Taoyuan Flight Attendants Union (TFAU) reached a consensus, the 2,060 flight attendants on strike — about half of EVA’s total cabin crew — have returned to work, the union said.
