Tiger Airways which may resume its domestic Australian operations later this week has removed Alice Springs, Darwin, Canberra, Cairns, Hobart, Mackay, Melbourne (Avalon), Rockhampton and Sunshine Coast from the drop down booking menus on its site.

Some of those services had previously been dropped (although the Where We Fly graphic on the Tiger website has never been updated to recognise those changes).

The changes were noticed by Plane Talking reader Creeper. Tiger Airways has been asked to comment.

The Australian cities remaining on the booking function are Adelaide, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne (Tullamarine), Perth and Sydney.

Tiger has ten Airbus A320s at its disposal in its Australian domestic fleet.

It has been grounded as unsafe since July 1 by CASA, and has been unable to understand or comply with Australian safety requirements over a period of many months.
