Tiger Airways: “Tiger Airways Singapore continues to generate reasonable load factors, albeit at lower year-on-year levels. The capacity increases during the course of last calendar year will be consolidated, including frequency adjustments as appropriate. The Group expects to report a significant net loss for the financial year largely as a result of the CASA suspension in Australia, the under-utilisation of the Group’s aircraft fleet and exposure to high and volatile jet fuel prices.” Company statement.
