Budget airline Air Australia placed in administration (Also Phuket)

THOUSANDS of Air Australia passengers are stranded overseas after the budget airline was abruptly placed into administration overnight.

More than 4000 travellers have been told to find another way home after the airline’s fleet was grounded indefinitely.

“Mr Korda said flights were suspended at 1.30am after the company was unable to pay for a fuel for a Melbourne-bound flight departing from Phuket.”
