The Civil Aviation regulator in India, the Director General of Civil Aviation, has asked Indigo Airlines to replace the Pratt & Whitney engines within 15 days. The ruling comes because of the existing engines having worked for more than 2900 hours. This ruling will be applicable to A320neo airlines and to 16 of such airplanes. These airplanes have two engines and the DGCA directive says that at least one engine will need to be replaced.
DGCA found that there were three in-flight engine shutdown in the month of October which prompted it to direct the Indigo Airlines to do the needful.
Indigo airlines has launched a new flight service from Trichy to Hyderabad and Bengaluru.
