Taiwan’s Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) has promised to investigate after allegations were made that pilots on Tiger Air flights regularly took naps after take-off.
The allegations were made by a co-pilot who took pictures over a one year period of 8 pilots sleeping on the job.
Tiger Air, a Taiwan-based low cost carrier, said that of the 8 pilots, 5 are currently employed by the airline, and 3 have since left.
The CAA said that if the allegations are proven, Tiger Air may be liable to pay a fine of between NT$600,000 and NT$3 million.
