Earlier this week, Tigerair has suspended all its flights from and to Bali, Indonesia after the airline company has failed to conform to the new changes in the aviation rules and requirements of the Indonesian government in connection to the licensing conditions among carriers - leaving Australians and other guests outraged.

 The low-cost airline is now temporarily allowed to operate the company's business from Bali to Australia until January 16 so as to transport the stranded passengers on their way back home. However, the continuance of the operations of Tigerair's flights in Bali is still uncertain.

As of this time, almost 2,000 passengers are stranded in Indonesia because of the flight cancellations. According to a report by ABC News, in order to bring the aggrieved passengers, a Boeing 737-800 aircraft will fly to Bali to fetch them back in Australia.

Tigerair has already cancelled all its flights from Australia to Indonesia until January 20. But in its official statement, the budget airline company confirmed that all of its flights from Melbourne to Bali, Perth to Bali and Adelaide to Bali from January 21 onwards are all under review, Mail Online reports. Furthermore, Tigerair has also expressed its deepest apologies for all the affected passengers for the inconvenience that was caused by the said flight cancellations.

Part of Tigerair's official statement reads: "Tigerair Australia has cancelled four 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."

Stranded passengers were outraged as they get into several unplanned expenses for their extended accommodation, flight alternatives and meals. Despite the confirmation of the continuation of TIgerair's flights until January 20, the transport of some passengers including those who booked their flights after January 16 is still uncertain.

At present, TIgerair is searching for means in order for the airline company to continue its flight operations in Bali which includes its compliance to the new requirements set by the Indonesian Government.
