Japan’s Peach Aviation, a low-cost arm of ANA Holdings, said it had cancelled 92 domestic flights between Dec. 27 and Jan. 13 as supply chain issues delay the delivery of new aircraft.

Peach has an all-Airbus fleet of narrowbody planes.

Air France takes delivery of its twentieth Airbus A350-900.

The announcement on Peach’s website dated Tuesday came hours after Reuters reported Airbus was preparing the ground for further delays to planned delivery dates of some medium-haul planes in 2023.

Airbus will have a clearer picture on 2022 deliveries by the end of November, but the supply chain environment “remains very complex”, Chief Executive Officer Guillaume Faury said on Tuesday.
