CASA issues Tiger Airways suspension update
29 July 2011

The Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) has given Tiger Airways Australia a set of conditions which can form the basis for the airline resuming operations.

A number of these conditions must be satisfied before any flights can be undertaken. Others require Tiger Airways to take ongoing actions, to CASA’s satisfaction, as the airline builds back up to a normal schedule.

The conditions do not allow for a resumption of operations until CASA is satisfied Tiger is able to do so safely.

If Tiger accepts these conditions, there will be no need for CASA to pursue its application in the Federal Court for an order continuing the suspension of the airline’s operating certificate. In the meantime, Tiger remains suspended and the matter is listed to be heard by the Federal Court on 1 August 2011.

CASA suspended the operations of Tiger Airways Australia on 1 July 2011 due to serious and imminent risk to air safety.
