Budget carrier Peach Aviation Ltd. said Tuesday that due to a shortage of pilots, it will cancel 894 flights in July and August, or 20 percent of its overall flights, including 86 international services connecting Osaka with Hong Kong and Okinawa with Taipei.

The number of cancellations for those two months rose from the company’s earlier estimate by 56, as two trainees who were expected to become pilots resigned from the company in early May.
