Tiger Airways gets off the ground again
TIGER Airways is about to take to Australian skies once more just after the lifting in the spending budget airline’s six-week suspension.

Tiger mentioned it would now focus on reassuring Australian consumers that it regarded security as its highest priority.
“The airline would prefer to reassure all Australians that security underpins the operation whatsoever occasions,” said Tiger spokeswoman Vanessa Regan.
“Tiger’s focus moving forward is on enhancing reliability as well as giving Australians with protected and affordable air travel.
“Tiger Airways is committed to a protected and viable long-term long term in Australia.”
Tiger’s return towards the air comes using a new set of ailments imposed by CASA.
Those disorders cover further education for pilots, enhanced pilot rostering and fatigue management systems, and modifications to Tiger Airways security management system.
