The P&W engine-powered A320 neo planes in the fleets of the two airlines have been facing glitches both mid-air and on-ground since their induction way back in 2016, which has also led to grounding of some planes.
At present, there are 127 A320 neo aircraft -- 92 and 35 belonging to IndiGo and GoAir, respectively -- powered by Pratt and Whitney engines in India. Total 436 such aircraft are operating globally.
"Manufacturer (Pratt and Whitney) has been directed to ensure more availability of spare engines for Indian operators to prevent grounding of aircraft due to removal of engines," the DGCA
said in its statement.
