Tiger Airways: “The Group is forecasting a lower load factor in the quarter ending 31-Dec-2011 compared to the 88.0% load factor recorded in the quarter ended 31-Dec-2010. Forward bookings are being closely monitored and seat capacity will be appropriately adjusted, if required, to optimise revenue. The Group expects to record a significant net loss for the financial year, due to the losses generated by Tiger Airways Australia as a result of the CASA suspension, and the Group’s exposure to high and volatile jet fuel prices.” Company statement.
