IndiGo grounds a A320neo aircraft for engine replacement

New Delhi: Budget passenger carrier IndiGo on Tuesday said that it has proactively grounded an Airbus A320neo aircraft for a routine engine replacement.

“Post normal completion of a flight, an IndiGo aircraft was proactively grounded for a routine engine replacement yesterday (September 10, 2018),” the airline said in a statement.

“There was no impact on our flight operations.”

In July, the budget passenger carrier had grounded a few of its A320neo aircraft due to want of spare engines from Pratt and Whitney.

IndiGo, that time said the release of additional spare engines was initiated by PW and all aircraft are expected to be back in service in the second half of August.
