Tiger Airways says it is confident it will soon resume services in Australia after CASA issued it with formal conditions that the airline must comply with before returning to the air.
“CASA has today issued Tiger Airways Australia with a set of formal conditions that the airline must comply with, some of which must be satisfied prior to the reintroduction of their domestic flights,” the airline said in a statement issued on Thursday evening. “As a result of the progress made since 1 July 2011, Tiger Airways Australia is confident that it can comply with these conditions and expects to resume services in the near future.”
Tiger says it will now automatically refund tickets booked for travel between August 1 and 4.
“A further announcement, concerning flights scheduled to operate from 5 August 2011 and the re-commencement of sales, will be made at the appropriate time.”
