Jetstar Japan Temporary Cancels Shanghai Debut in January 2017
By Lena Ge, China Aviation Daily | Jan. 10, 2017
Jetstar Japan last Friday announced temporary cancellation of planned Tokyo Narita-Shanghai route due to poor on-time performance at Shanghai Pudong International Airport.
"We're sorry to inform you that we will temporarily cancel the Shanghai-Tokyo flight GK35/36, previously scheduled to commence on January 23," the airline said via its official Sina Weibo account.
Shanghai Pudong International Airport has been banned from adding new services by the Civil Aviation Administration of China, for failing to meet the required on-time performance standard. Therefore, Jetstar Japan projects it might be unable to secure permission to open the route on time, as on-going restrictions of new routes/flights application at Shanghai remains in place.
On November 1, 2016, the low-cost carrier announced it would make China debut with a four-times-weekly service between Shanghai and Tokyo Narita on January 23. Ticket sales commenced on the same day.
Those who have already booked the tickets will be entitled to a full refund with a coupon valued at 10,000 yen, Jetstar Japan added.
