Three quarters of Tigerair airline pilots plan to strike from 05:00 to 09:00 (local time) on Friday, January 25, over dissatisfactory pay and working conditions. Organizers have called the work stoppage to coincide with the upcoming Australia Day holiday weekend. Participating personnel will also reportedly refuse to fly in planes with non-safety-related defects from Saturday, January 26, to Monday, January 28. This industrial action is likely to cause flight disruptions, including delays and cancelations. Affected customers have been contacted regarding changes to their flights. The company's management ensures its passengers that contingency plans are in place to minimize flight disruptions.
Travelers in or traveling to Australia over the coming days are advised to monitor developments to the situation, confirm travel reservations, and contact the airline for more information.
