first_imgTiger Airways will resume flights between Melbourne and Brisbane today, almost seven weeks after the carrier was forced to suspend flights due to safety concerns.The low-cost carrier was grounded early last month by the Civil Aviation Authority of Australia (CASA) after it was considered a flying hazard.Six weeks of negotiation and safety adjustments, the carrier received its Air Operator’s Certificate early last week and announced that it would roll out its services over time and that for the moment only flights between Sydney and Melbourne would return to the sky.However, earlier this week the carrier said it would resume services between Brisbane and Melbourne, commencing with a daily return afternoon flight that will take off today.The carrier added that it will pick up the number of flights between Melbourne and Brisbane from 23 August, with two daily return services.“Brisbane has always been a popular Tiger destination so it makes sense that the Sunshine State is the next cab off the rank following the welcome resumption of our Melbourne – Sydney services last week,” Tiger Airways head of marketing Vanessa Regan said.Achieving solid bookings since its return last week and 100 percent departure and arrival performances, Mr Regan added that the carrier’s long term goal was focused on safety and punctuality.“With safety underpinning the operation at all times, a key long term goal for Tiger Airways is to become the most popular and punctual airline operating in Australia,” Ms Regan said.“Combined with our great value fares we believe that we have an offering many Australians will continue to embrace.” Source = e-Travel Blackboard: N.Jlast_img read more
