Two IndiGo aircraft grounded due to technical snag during take-off

Yet another IndiGo flight grounded in Delhi

In what was the third incident with its Airbus A320neo aircraft equipped with Pratt & Whitney's PW1100G engines in two days, low-priced carrier IndiGo witnessed fuel leak on one of the power plants on a plane. An A320 (neo) aircraft of the IndiGo was supposed to leave for Mumbai from Cochin.

Another IndiGo Airbus 320 Neo plane was temporarily grounded at the Jammu airport due to fuel leakage from engine 1.

In a separate statement about the second incident, the company said: "A320 neo aircraft that operated Delhi-Srinagar was cleared after maintenance checks upon arrival at Srinagar airport". However, during engine start the Pilot-in-Command observed a hydraulic (not oil) leakage from no 2 engine. The number of flights cancelled between March 25 and March 31 stands at 16 per day, the airline indicated.

Both IndiGo and GoAir cancelled several flights during the last one week due to a number of aircraft being grounded. On Sunday, the airline witnessed problems develop on two aircraft, of which one was withdrawn from service.

DGCA and Ministry of Civil Aviation said that they are monitoring the safety issues very closely and have grounded 14 such aircraft proactively. The aircraft was immediately withdrawn to investigate the hydraulic leak. They include flights to and from Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Delhi, Jammu, Bhubaneswar, Jammu, Amristar, Goa, Coimbatore, Indore, Kochi, Mangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Thiruvananthapuram, Varanasi, Raipur, Visakhapatnam, among others. Meanwhile GoAir is seen cancelling about 138 flights between March 15 - March 22.

This brings the total number of similar instances of serious technical glitches to six in the past week alone, sending Indias domestic flights into a tailspin of heavy turbulence.

According to monthly air traffic data released by the DGCA on Monday, during the month of February alone, 37,964 IndiGo passengers were affected due to flight cancellations, compared with 55,838 passengers affected due to flight cancellations in the 13-month period ended January 2018.

Both Indigo and GoAir continued to fly the planes with these engines as it is believed that A320Neo planes, which come with two engines, can be operated even if one engine fails.
