Australia lifts ban on Tiger Airways
Sydney, August 10, 2011

AUSTRALIA’S Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) has finally lifted a six-week ban on the domestic operations of Tiger Airways.


Though the lift is immediate, Tiger Airways Australia will only be allowed to fly nine return flights a day for the rest of August, with any expansion subject to CASA’s approval.



The airline said in a statement that it would recommence ticket sales and gradually resume domestic services, starting with flights between Melbourne and Sydney, from August 12. 



The carrier was flying about 60 flights a day till July 2, when CASA grounded its operations over safety concerns (TTG Asia e-Daily, July 7).
