TIGER AIRWAYS AGREES TO GROUNDING UNTIL AUGUST 1ST

Confirmation has come in of yesterday’s report that Tiger will be grounded until the end of July. Singapore-based Tiger Airways Holdings said former SilkAir CEO Chin Yau Seng would take over as acting CEO to allow the company’s head, Tony Davis, to focus on overseeing subsidiary Tiger Airways Australia’s recovery from its grounding by regulators over safety issues. Speaking with the Australian Broadcasting Corp., Davis said, “We’re doing everything necessary to reassure CASA and the public that Tiger is a safe and viable airline and has an absolute long-term future in Australia … Right now we’re undertaking a comprehensive review of the operation, we’re making sure that we can assure ourselves that the airline is safe and viable and we’re focused on resuming services at the end of the month. So, the process is ongoing.”
