IndiGo's woes continue as 3 aircraft face tech glitches

Yet another IndiGo flight grounded in Delhi 'P and W-powered grounded jets will return to service by April'

Pratt & Whitney jet engine unit will ship spare engines to India's IndiGo airlines to get its grounded Airbus (EADSY) jetliners flying again, Bloomberg said. For a while, the two airlines operated these aircraft under certain restrictions but later, the problem was said to be solved.

In the first incident, an A320neo aircraft (VT-ITX) was withdrawn for inspection after metal chips were detected in the jet's engine oil at New Delhi airport after it completed the Bengaluru-New Delhi flight on Sunday morning.

An A320 neo aircraft that operated Mumbai-Jammu, during maintenance checks was detected with leakage from one engine.

As per the detailed flight schedule submitted to Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), a PTI report highlighted that, Indigo would not operate 36 daily flights between March 15 and March 21.

IndiGo did not immediately reply to an email seeking comment, but said in a statement earlier today it had cancelled no more than 35 to 45 flights a day, which is around 3 per cent of its schedule. Approx. one week ago the aviation regulator ordered to ground 11 A320neo's air craft of Indigo and Go Air.

There are a few global flights from Muscat and to Sharjah that have been cancelled as well. On the whole, 138 flights stand cancelled.

While reportedly another 18 flights would remain cancelled between March 22 and March 24.

As far as market share is concerned, IndiGo continued to dominate in February with a 39.9% share. The DGCA and P&W estimate that the problem will persist till at least June as the engine manufacturer needs time to provide replacements. On Monday, the share price of Indigo witnessed selling pressure, as it tumbled by Rs 37.40 or 2.96% on BSE, trading at Rs 1,224.60 at around 1207 hours.
