The Australian aviation authority forced Singapore´s Tiger Airways to stay on the ground for a minimum of a week. The airline will not operate until Saturday, July 9.
Tiger Airways will lose around AU$1 million each day it stays on the ground.
On Thursday, the airline committed the latest breach of safety standards as one of its Airbus 320 flew considerably below the minimum altitude limit.
“(CASA) has lost confidence in Tiger’s ability to manage safety appropriately,” a spokesperson for CASA (Australia´s Civil Aviation Safety Authority) said.
