Now, 2 IndiGo A320neo planes face glitches, one grounded
22 March 2018, 01:16 | Stacy Ballard
Last month, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) red-flagged a new safety issue with PW1100G which involved a recent modification that the engine maker issued to the product. Of these flights, 42 are of IndiGo and six belong to GoAir.
An IndiGo spokesperson told Moneycontrol that the company would not comment on this story.
"During the maintenance check, metal chips were observed on 1 Engine, 3 Bearing Chip detector, which is a known concern on the Neo engine".
Earlier this month, the Directorate-General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) had grounded the airline's 11 Airbus A320 Neos due to issues with Pratt and Whitney engines which powered the aircraft. Now all 14 A320neos in India with engines bearing serial number 450 and beyond are grounded.
"You may have seen that the Indian authorities took a decision to ground the fleet in India that have engines of this that had the design escape". Between 30 days for slot cancellation and 40-day delivery, it should be a small task for the 6E carrier. This grounding raises question over the reliability of 31 Pratt and Whitney (PW) engined A320neos now operational in India. That takes the total number of its grounded planes to 12. While rare, there is a possibility of both engines failing during a flight.
According to reports, engine manufacturer Pratt and Whitney has said that 98 engines on A320neo aircraft may be prone to shutting down.
The other four, two of whom were also Airbus A320 Neo jets, were allowed to resume operations on Monday after repairs. Each Airbus A320 Neo carries around 180 passengers. The performance was computed based on data from Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad airports. Initially, the problems included slow engine start-up times leading to delays and erroneous software messages to the pilots, but the situation has worsened since.
A string of problems has clouded the rollout of P&W's new engines, with the United States aviation regulator warning in February that some engines fitted on the narrow-body A320neo planes posed a shutdown risk.
