Tiger Airways issued show cause by CASA

Tiger Airways has been issued with a "show cause" notice by Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority following reports of safety, training and maintenance breaches (Embrace Australia/ABC, 20-Apr-2011). CASA, Australia's industry safety regulator, is requesting evidence to demonstrate that claims made against the airline are not true. Tiger has 21 days to respond to the notice; failure to do so may result in all Tiger aircraft being grounded. It is the first time CASA has taken such action against a main Australian airline since it threatened to stop Ansett operating in 2001. Tiger Airways Australia has denied any safety risk.
