Tigerair Australia announced today that they are permanently withdrawing all flights between Australia and Bali effective immediately. (Please visit their website or contact them directly for further information.) The information we provided below on 11/1/17 remains unchanged:
As at 11/1/17: Along with recent media reports, Tigerair Australia advises that they have cancelled flights between Bali and Australia from today, 11 January 2017, following new administrative requirements imposed by the Indonesian Government. It is anticipated further flight cancellations will be announced over the coming days.
Your policy will respond in the following ways:
For policies purchased before 2:00pm AET on Wednesday 11 January 2017, cover may be available under Section 6: Travel delay and Section 9: Special events. Refer to your Product Disclosure Statement for full policy terms, conditions, limits and exclusions.
For policies purchased on or after 2:00pm AET on Wednesday 11 January 2017, cover is not available for events arising from any cancelled Tigerair flights between Bali and Australia due to the new administrative requirements imposed by the Indonesian Government, as the event is no longer unforeseen.
