SpiceJet confirms no fuel leak in Kochin bound grounded aircraft

New Delhi: A Kochin bound SpiceJet aircraft was grounded at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi on April 1 after the crew suspected a fuel leak from one of its engines.
However the airlines, in a statement on Tuesday, have confirmed that there was no such technical issue with the aircraft and the grounding was more of a cautionary move.
"During start-up, the crew suspected fuel leak from one of the engines after which aircraft was attended to by qualified engineers. During engine run-up, no leak was found and aircraft was immediately released for operations," said the statement by SpiceJet.
