Tigerair Flight DG-8802 was taxiing for departure to Singapore and got stuck at the end of runway 05 while making a 180 degree turn. Airport operations were halted for six hours until the aircraft could be moved from the runway. Passengers were put in hotels to wait for an available flight.

The Aircraft Accident Investigation and Inquiry Board determined that the probable
cause of this accident was:
- Primary Cause Factor
Inadequate pilot knowledge and skill in 180 degrees taxiing turn. Human Factor. Pilot Error.
The PIC performed the 180 degrees taxiing turn from the right of the runway turning left and maintained 45 degrees of divergence from the runway axis instead of 25 degrees divergence angle based on Airbus Flight Crew Manual. The PIC maintained such 45 degrees angle in previous flight.
- Contributory Factor
Inadequate pilot recurrency training on operations procedures (in-house and simulator).
The repeated wrong application of the PIC taxiing procedures (which was not given undue correction) despite the re-currency training being provided by the Service Provider
every six (6) months.
- Underlying Factor
Inadequate operations standards surveillance by the Service Provider and Regulatory Inspections.
There was no record of findings by the assigned POI related to inadequacy of training, knowledge and skills of aircrew.
