IndiGo Airlines operated A320neo aircraft had to return to Mumbai airport, from where it had taken off, because of high engine vibrations.
This is the second IndiGo A320neo aircraft that encountered vibration issues with one of its engine.
In an official statement, IndiGo authorities stated, “IndiGo flight 6E-236 was flying from Mumbai to Bengaluru when its pilot decided to turn back after seeing a caution advisory in an instrument panel, the no-frills airline that is battling issues with Pratt and Whitney (P&W) engines.”
The statement added, “An IndiGo A320neo aircraft was operating Mumbai-Bangalore this morning. During the flight, the pilot observed a caution message. Standard operating procedures were followed and the aircraft was returned to Mumbai as a precaution.”
On December 2, another Indigo A320neo flying from Chennai to Hyderabad faced the same issue.
IndiGo is increasingly flying into turbulence ever since the DGCA's American counterpart Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) told operators of the A320neo across the globe to urgently modify a critical component of the aircraft's low-pressure turbine.
