In yet another snag with the Pratt and Whitney (PW) engines powering the Airbus A-320 new engine option (NEO), an IndiGo aircraft flying from Ahmedabad to Kolkata on Wednesday had to be diverted to Nagpur after the cockpit reportedly got an engine failure message. The IndiGo NEO (VT-ITK) landed safely in Nagpur. A ferry flight was organised to complete the journey of stranded passengers at Nagpur.
Sources say 6E-135’s pilots got a message that engine number two had failed. The latest problem with the snag-ridden PW engines of A-320 NEO has been reported to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).
