Yet another IndiGo flight grounded in Delhi

Pratt & Whitney jet engine unit will ship spare engines to India's IndiGo airlines to get its grounded Airbus (EADSY) jetliners flying again, Bloomberg said.

IndiGo, however, in a statement said that the aircraft was "proactively withdrawn" in Delhi for a maintenance check to attend to a defect reported by the pilot."These maintenance checks are part of a comprehensive programme of early detection".

"An A320 (non neo) aircraft operating Cochin-Mumbai and another A320 (non neo) aircraft operating Mumbai-Goa, had technical snag detected during departure".

After DGCA's direction, all the A320neo aircraft with PW1100 engines beyond serial number 450 have been taken off operations in India.

When asked about flight cancellation, the official said airlines are updating fares on their websites and if other airlines started charging higher fares, the regulator will interfere.

He told, "I went to Nordstrom to get trousers , and the next thing I know, the doors are being sealed". The city of Thousand Oaks tweeted that the mall is secure and no one else was in danger.

IndiGo, a low-priced carrier and India's largest airline by market share, canceled hundreds of flights after the government directive.

Airbus offers a choice between engines manufactured by two companies for being fitted into the planes - Pratt & Whitney's (P&W) PurePower PW1100G-JM and CMF International's LEAP-1A. The performance was computed based on data from Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad airports. Several instances of engines shutting down during flights and rejected take-offs have been reported on certain Airbus A320neo planes, forcing regulators to ground many of them.

Curently, in India, the A320Neo engines are used by Air India, Indigo, Vistara and GoAir on domestic route. This caused a reduced capacity for the airlines forcing them to cancel flights. The number of flights cancelled between March 25 and March 31 stands at 16 per day, the airline indicated.

According to the report, people with direct knowledge of the matter has said that Airbus SE A320neo aircraft will soon be flying again, with the first delivery scheduled for. On Monday, the share price of Indigo witnessed selling pressure, as it tumbled by Rs 37.40 or 2.96% on BSE, trading at Rs 1,224.60 at around 1207 hours.
