Air Australia – formerly operating as Strategic Airlines, have grounded their entire fleet of airplanes, leaving an estimated 4,000 passengers stranded in destinations from Hawaii to Phuket, Thailand.

The grounding happened when aircraft at various international destinations were reportedly refused refueling by airport operators.

Air Australia has subsequently posted an announcement on its website declaring it has entered into a state of voluntary administration. The company has appointed John Park and Mark Korda of KordaMentha as voluntary administrators.

Virgin Australia, JetStar and Qantas are working to assist Air Australia passengers stranded by the grounding.

In Bali passengers holding Air Australia tickets can book travel from Denpasar to Brisbane, Denpasar to Melbourne and Denpasar-Sydney at a cost of only US$199 on Virgin Australia.

  • A special fare of USD$199 one-way will be available for sale effective immediately for travel from Denpasar to BNE/SYD & MEL
  • On sale until midnight Monday 20th February, 2012
  • For departures until Friday 2nd March 2012
  • To qualify for the special fare passengers must present a ticket receipt for unredeemed travel on Virgin Australia
Tickets can be booked on line or by contacting Virgin Australia in Bali at 62-(0) 361- 289821 or 0800-1-401-359

Qantas is issuing return tickets at the same value paid for the original Air Australia ticket. Passengers can charge that fare on their credit cards, seeking reimbursement from their travel agent or credit card suppliers later.

Air Australia flew domestic routes and internationally to Bali, Honolulu and Phuket.
