Tiger Australia expected to remain grounded until 01-Aug

Tiger Airways Australia is expected to remain grounded until at least 01-Aug-2011 as the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) seeks an extension with the Federal Court for an extension to the grounding (Reuters, 06-Jul-2011). CASA said if it completes its investigations before 01-Aug-2011 and was satisfied Tiger Airways Australia no longer posed "a serious and imminent risk to air safety", it could clear the carrier to resume operations earlier.
