IndiGo, GoAir A320 Neos Grounded Due To Safety Concern Back In Operation


All 14 Pratt & Whitney engine-powered Airbus A320 Neo planes of the two budget carriers — IndiGo and GoAir — which were grounded between February and March this year due to safety concerns are now back into operation, officials said.

Of these 14 planes, 11 were of IndiGo and three of the Wadia group-promoted GoAir.

None of the 11 A320 Neo planes fitted with P&W engines which were taken out of operation due to the engine glitches are now on ground. All these planes are back into service, an IndiGo official said on Sunday.

A GoAir official also said that its three Airbus A 320 Neos which were grounded by the regulator DGCA on March 12 are now flying again.

However, spokespersons of both IndiGo and GoAir were not available for comments. Read More…
