CASA to seek to extend Tiger Airways Australia suspension

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) is to seek to extend the suspension of Tiger Airways Australia Pty Ltd.

CASA suspended Tiger Airways Australia’s operations on 2 July 2011 because it believed permitting the airline to continue to fly posed a serious and imminent risk to air safety.  On July 6 CASA reported that it was seeking a continuation of the suspension until 1 August 2011 through an application to the Federal Court.

If CASA completes its investigations and determinations before 1 August 2011 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. 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.

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.
