Australian Authorities To Seek Extension Of Tiger Airways Suspension

CASA Would Extend Suspention Of The Airline Unitl August 1st

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) of Australia says it plans to ask an Australian federal court to extend the suspension of Tiger Airways Australia Pty Ltd until August 1st. The application will be lodged at the Federal Court in Melbourne.

CASA suspended Tiger Airways Australia’s operations on July 2nd because it believed permitting the airline to continue to fly posed a serious and imminent risk to air safety. The suspension of Tiger Airways Australia’s operations remains in place at until either the Federal Court refuses CASA’s application or CASA withdraws it. If CASA completes its investigations and determinations before August 1st and is satisfied Tiger Airways Australia no longer poses a serious and imminent risk to air safety it may be possible for it to resume operations earlier.

CASA is making the application to the Court because investigations into Tiger Airways Australia will not be completed by the end of the initial five working day suspension period. The agency says it will continue to work in a constructive and co-operative manner with Tiger Airways Australia during the investigation.
