Tigerair Australia withdraws from Bali

The Indonesian authorities have informed Tigerair that they require an alternative regulatory solution for Tigerair's operations to Bali.

In order for Tigerair to continue operating flights to Bali, it would have to transfer to a new operating model that would take at least six months to implement, Mr Sharp said.

Today's drama follows Bali travel chaos last month when the budget airline was forced to suspend fights to and from Bali when the Indonesian authorities cancelled an agreement with Tigerair.

He said Tigerair Australia's ambition to have a short haul worldwide network remains and "we will now work towards alternative opportunities". Virgin Australia had previously operated the flights itself but shifted them to Tigerair in an attempt to restore its worldwide division to profitability.

The budget airline, which is majority-owned by Virgin Australia, said it would take six months to meet the Indonesian requirements and they would compromise its ability to provide low-priced airfares.

The flights - the airline has been flying from Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth to Bali since March 2016, taking over services previously operated by parent Virgin - would resume "subject to final procedural approvals being secured", Tigerair said at the time.

The airline said its customers in Australia would be given full refunds and any travellers in Bali who had booked travel on the airline would be given accommodation and booked on Virgin Australia or other airlines.

It is not believed Virgin Australia plans to put its own aircraft back on those routes.
