Another IndiGo A320 Neo aircraft grounded due to engine snag

Indigo A320 Neo engines fiasco More trouble for passengers as 3 flights grounded in 24 hours

"In a statement, a spokesperson from Indigo said", An A320neo aircraft that operated Bangalore-Delhi Sunday morning was proactively withdrawn in Delhi for a maintenance check to attend to a Pilot Reported Defect. In the third alarming incident on Sunday in India's domestic skies, yet another Airbus 320 neo aircraft was grounded due to a major engine snag. One can easily differentiate an Airbus A320neo from an older Airbus A320 (most of the IndiGo and GoAir fleet) by looking at their size - Neo planes have a bigger engine.

Following this, Indigo announced temporary grounding of another A320 Neo aircraft that operated on the Delhi-Srinagar route at Srinagar following detection of a hydraulic leak in an engine.

"During the maintenance check, metal chips were observed on 1 Engine, 3 Bearing Chip detector, which is a known concern on the Neo engine". Problems ranged from production delays to grounded flights. "We're disappointed with that decision, but I can tell you that by the end of April, that fleet will be back up in the air flying in India", he said during an interaction with parent firm United Technologies Corporation's (UTC) investors. According to the list of cancelled flights provided by these airlines on their websites, IndiGo cancelled a total of 304 flights between March 15 and March 24, whereas GoAir canceled 138. Aviation regulator DGCA said it is keeping a close watch on the recent incidents."These appear as one-off incidents and not linked with the engine issues due to which some planes have been grounded". This caused a reduced capacity for the airlines forcing them to cancel flights.
