Tigerair has been forced to cancel flights between Australia and Bali over a legal technicality imposed on the budget airline by the Indonesian Government.
Four flights have been cancelled today including flight TT24 from Bali to Perth, stranding over 170 passengers on the holiday island.
“Tigerair Australia has cancelled several flights to Denpasar (Bali) today following a decision by the Indonesian government to impose new administrative requirements for the operation of its flights between Bali and Australia,” read a statement from the airline.
“Tomorrow’s daily return Bali flights are under review. In the event of further cancellations, customers will be contacted proactively by Tigerair Australia.
“Tigerair is working with the relevant Indonesian authorities to meet the new requirements and is hopeful of having flights up and running again as soon as possible.”
Customers booked to travel on Tigerair services to and from Bali today are advised not to go to the airport and the airline will contact them directly with their options.
The airlines has apologised for the inconvenience.
