Bali Civil Aviation Authority Suspends Tiger Airways Australia Flights

On January 11, the Bali Civil Aviation Authority representatives announced the suspension of Tiger Airways Australia for violating aviation regulations.

The directorate general of Bali’s civil aviation office has reported that all foreign airlines operating in the country should comply with the aviation safety regulations set by the Indonesian government.

The directorate’s head of cooperation and public relations Agoes Soebagio told reporters that the directorate will be providing tougher enforcements and sanctions for all airlines that fail to follow the regulations.

The aviation authority issued the statement after it was made known yesterday that a number of Tiger Airways Australia-operated chartered flights were suspended in Denpasar, Bali.

Tiger Airways Australia offers flights from Adelaide, Perth and Melbourne to Denpasar. The airline was suspended for breaching the rules of selling one-way tickets, which is not allowed for all chartered flights.

In fact, Tiger Airways Australia is prohibited from selling any tickets as it has a standing charter agreement with Virgin Australia International Airlines, and hence, only Virgin Australia is authorized to sell those.

All Tiger Airways Australia flights have been cancelled with the sanction until further notice.
