TIA customers to get refunds


Share post:

Customers who bought tickets to fly on Trans Island Air (TIA 2000) within the next two months need not fear, even though the airline will be grounded.

TIA 2000 general manager Simon Angoy is promising that no customers who had bought tickets with the airline would be disadvantaged.

“All of our creditors will be fully paid, and any customers who purchased tickets that are unused will be fully refunded,” he said.

Angoy revealed that TIA had stopped flying on April 18, and would review the situation again when the 60-day, self-imposed suspension was concluded.

He also denied emphatically that the company was facing financial challenges.

TIA, which started its operations on May 29, 2017, had a staff of 31, but according to management, 20 of those employees would be affected in addition to sub-contractors, who are hired by the airline.

The airline’s fleet consisted of two 14-seat Beech 99 turbo prop aircraft and a 19-seat twin turbo prop Twin Otter. A seven-seat King Air plane was due to come on line later this year. (BA)
