Pratt & Whitney says working closely with operators to address engine glitches

American aerospace maker Pratt & Whitney on Monday said it was working closely with IndiGo and GoAir Airlines after the operators grounded eight Airbus A320neo planes following issues with aircraft engines.

Pratt & Whitney, owned by Connecticut-based United Technologies Corp, said some of the aircraft will be out of service temporarily due to the planned engine replacements.

Last week, IndiGo, India’s biggest low-cost carrier, grounded eight aircraft while smaller rival GoAir grounded three Airbus A320neo planes after issues with Pratt & Whitney aircraft engines.
