Directorate General of Civil Aviation has banned the operation of 11 A320 neo aircraft powered by a certain series of Pratt & Whitney (P&W) engines following instances of engine failures during flights.

After DGCA's regulations, the IndiGo airlines have ascertained that none of these affected engines shall be operated by IndiGo.

With this, all the A320neo aircraft with PW1100 engines beyond serial number 450 have been taken off operation in India.

The move immediately grounded eight aircraft at IndiGo, India's largest carrier, and three at GoAirlines India Pvt.

On February 13, DGCA had said that it was monitoring engine glitches to ensure that safety is not compromised at any time. The DGCA has been in touch with M/s Airbus and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) on the matter. It comes after three in-service shutdowns of aircraft with one PW1100 engine featuring the seal, two of which occurred in the past week, according to the DGCA.

Clarifying its position, Pratt & Whitney in a statement said: "We are working closely with our customers to minimize disruption".

IndiGo released a statement on the DGCA's decision sayind, "We are in receipt of the communication from the DGCA and we shall promptly comply with the directions of the DGCA". The corrective action has been approved and we have already begun to deliver production engines with the upgraded configuration. Upon implementation of the directive, IndiGo shall have a total of nine A320neo aircraft on ground. The airlines have also apologised for the inconvenience caused to affected passengers and clarified that the affected passengers would be accommodated on other flights on our network. It and GoAir said they'd complied with the DGCA directive.

"Go Air said it was "altering flight schedules" and "making all possible arrangements" to minimise the impact".
