It seems incredible, but Tiger Airways just can’t get it right.
CASA has this evening issued the following update:
CASA has identified deficiencies in some of the documentation provided by Tiger. These need to be addressed by Tiger and resubmitted for review before CASA can complete its assessment. This will necessarily take some more time. Progress is essentially dependent on Tiger providing complete, correct and up-to-date documentation to CASA.
No airline in Australia has been more thick headed than the Singapore owned Tiger Airways domestic division. It failed to listen to CASA at the outset, it failed to meet its obligations to Australian law, it even told this writer last year that it would decide what parts of the regulations applied to it, and it hasn’t the competency required to understand and meet all the requirements.
Tiger was due to appear in the Federal Court in Melbourne tomorrow afternoon in relation to its grounding by CASA on July as an ‘imminent threat to public safety.’
