Australia's Federal Court has set 22 July for a directions hearing into an application by the country's Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) to extend a grounding on Tiger Airways Australia.

CASA filed the application with the court on 7 July, seeking to ground the airline until 1 August. It first grounded the carrier for a week from 2 July due to safety concerns.

The grounding of Tiger's flights in Australia continues in the meantime before the hearing.

Tiger has said it is optimistic that it will resume services.
