  3. TIGER Airways Australia has been given permission to start flying again but will be required to observe strict conditions and is limited to 18 flights per day for the rest of this month. The airline will be under increased supervision by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority. CASA chief John McCormick warned that failure to meet the conditions would be treated seriously. Tiger said it would resume flights on the Melbourne-Sydney route on Friday, with tickets going on sale today. Other routes will be announced shortly. A simplified flying program would also see it reduce its Australian fleet from 10 to eight aircraft, with two planes being redeployed overseas. It would also close its bases at Adelaide and Avalon, near Geelong, and offer staff the opportunity to redeploy to Melbourne. Passengers already booked to fly from Friday will be told of changes and offered a range of options, including a penalty-free transfer to another flight, or a refund if their flight is not operating. The decision to allow the airline to return to the air comes after its grounding almost six weeks ago, when CASA formed the view it was a serious and imminent threat to safety. The grounding followed two incidents in which Tiger pilots flew too low in the approach to Melbourne airports in June. During its grounding, all of Tiger's pilots underwent additional training and the airline has been required to significantly improve its records-keeping. Today's conditions cover areas such as pilot training and proficiency, pilot rostering and fatigue, currency and revision of operational manuals. The airline has also been required to improve its change management process, appoint additional qualified personnel to key positions and amend its safety management system. Mr McCormick, who declared he would personally be prepared to fly on the airline, said Tiger had demonstrated it could comply with the conditions and meet the necessary safety requirements. “On that basis, CASA now believes allowing Tiger Airways Australia to resume operations is acceptable,” he said in Brisbane. “Tiger Airways has co-operated with CASA's investigation and is to be credited for a constructive approach. “CASA will be closely monitoring the operations of Tiger Airways through scheduled surveillance and regular spot checks. We will also be meeting regularly with the airline to review ongoing safety performance and compliance with the conditions on the airline's operations. “Any failure to comply with these conditions will be taken seriously.” Mr McCormick said he hoped Tiger's public image had not been damaged beyond repair.
  4. Hey Everyone Well, this is it for us, the big move is upon us!! I constantly feel ill with nerves, after a very sad and eventful weekend (which involved sitting in a&e for 24 hrs with my daughter with a head injury) my head is spinning:spinny:! I still have a lot of goodbyes to get through, which is soooooo hard!:cry: It's hard to see why we are putting ourselves through this at the moment, i am hoping that when i get to sydney it will all become clear:wink: anyone else feel like this in the lead up to the move? Any tips on travelling with babies (aged 3 and 8 months) ? Anyone else heading to sydney from ireland at the same time as us?

    Friday the 13th

    I dont tend to beleive in Black Friday well not until today!!!!!! This morning I was awoken by one of my neighbours who informed that my car doors were all open. On closer inspection some dirty scum-bag had brokern in removed all my stuff CD's footy boots sat-nav mobile fone and wallet luckely cause I'm married it had nothing in it. Then it became apparrent that the same B@@@@@## had also tried to break in the house whilst my children wife and I were asleep. There was a reason why the british goverment sent people out here in excile now they prove that due to bad genetics they havent learnt their lesson. I count my stars that we are all ok but if they find this culprict then they should send him, his family and friends to either NZ or the UK in excile. Apart from this it has been amazing out here the people are generally friendly and everywhere is really clean and vibrante. One last thing that bothers me is I own a pair off Police sun-glasses that cost about $300 and they left them behind so either I have really poor taste in Sunny's or the intruder know's something that I obviously DON"T......I'm taking them to make sure they are the real McCoy!!!!!!:policeman:
  22. Not been on for a week or so ( computer problems). Anyway the reason for this post is to let you know that on Friday all profits Coles make (countrywide) they will be donating to the bushfire appeal for the poor people affected in Victoria. So please even if you dont shop in Coles, please go there on Friday....you will be helping so many people!! We have been here nearly 2 years and in that time we have made friends (through friends) that have not only lost there homes, cars etc but have also lost family/friends etc. OH friend who he works with is not at work this week, he is defending his home, the rest of his family (wife and 4 children under 12) have evacuated!! Its awful....so please help as much as you can!! Thanks so much to you all!! Deb xx
