“We encourage people to plan their travel, to consider travelling as early as possible and at off-peak times, and to use seat reservation where that is available.
“We would like to thank customers for their cooperation and understanding, and our staff for all their efforts as they work throughout the holiday period.
“It has been a very challenging year, we want everyone to travel safely and look forward to a healthy and safe 2021.”
