Since its grounding last month due to safety concerns, Alligator Airways remains under suspension by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA).
CASA suspended the Kununurra based carrier on 03 May 2012 because the airlines conduct of operational and maintenance-related activities was deemed unfit for air safety.
On 18 May 2012, the Federal court granted CASAs application for an order to prohibit Alligator Airways from operating until 04 June 2012.
Under the Civil Aviation Act, once investigations are completed, CASA has up to an additional five working days to issue a further notice if it believes there could still be a serious risk to air safety.
Alligator Airways will continue to remain grounded until CASA has completed its investigation and confirmed that the carrier it fit to fly.
If CASA does send out a further notice the suspension will continue while the issues raised are addressed, which could take up to 33 days.
