Tiger Airways Holdings Limited stated (19-Oct-2012) its wholly-owned subsidiary Tiger Airways Australia Pty Limited (Tiger Airways Australia) was on 19-Oct-2012 issued with a new Air Operators Certificate (AOC) by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority of Australia (CASA) without any restrictions associated with the 2011 grounding. The airline had previously been operating on an AOC with certain conditions imposed. Tiger Airways Australia CEO Andrew David said, “This is a significant milestone for Tiger Airways. Over the last year, we have worked hard to ensure that Tiger is second to none for safety, reliability and punctuality. Today’s news reflects our close working relationship with CASA and ongoing commitment to operational excellence.” In conjunction with CASA’s safety requirements, enhancements have been made to Tiger Airways Australia’s Safety Management System, and Tiger Airways Australia has now met all of the requirements set by the safety regulator. Mr David added, “Tiger Airways Australia will continue to work closely with CASA as the airline now focuses on achieving its commercial goals". The carrier has said that instead of rapidly expanding its domestic network, it is more likely to increase capacity on existing service (The Age, 19-Oct-2012). ''I haven't as yet seen any reductions in capacity. There is that much capacity it just puts pressure on everybody's yield - everyone is feeling it,'' Mr David noted. He continued, ''Qantas and Virgin are having a good go at each other and Jetstar is having a good go at us, and as a result there is a lot of pressure on airfares. The consumer is certainly getting a good deal.'' [more - original PR]

Australia and New Zealand hit highs in 2016, but 2017 will lose a little lustre
Australia and New Zealand enter 2017 on a different level from 12 months previously. The biggest change, not just compared to 2016 but since the global financial crisis, is that Qantas is revelling in a successful turnaround.
Global commercial aircraft deliveries fell in 2016 as Boeing again outsold Airbus; 2017 to be a peak
The global commercial aircraft fleet grew by 4% in 2016 and the year ended with an order backlog of more than nine years of production. Among the regions, North America still has the biggest and oldest fleet, but the lowest ratio of orders to aircraft in service. By contrast, Middle East has the fewest in service, but the highest ratio of orders to current fleet numbers.
This report gives an overview of the number of commercial aircraft deliveries in 2016 and the outlook into 2017 and beyond. It also looks at numbers in service and on order by region. It is based on preliminary numbers from the CAPA Fleet Database and guidance on 2016 deliveries from Airbus and Boeing, who have yet to announce final numbers.
The data indicate that total worldwide deliveries fell in 2016, the first such decline for six years, as a result of delays to new aircraft programmes. Boeing delivered more aircraft than Airbus for the fifth straight year, but its deliveries fell short of its 2015 level, while Airbus increased its numbers year-on-year. Total deliveries will likely rise again in 2017, but this may prove to be a peak year.
