Unhappy about Pratt & Whitney engine issues: IndiGo's Bhatia

Mumbai: Budget carrier IndiGo's cofounder and interim chief executive officer Rahul Bhatia today said he is unhappy with the frequent issues with Pratt & Whitney (P&W) engines, which power the airline's Airbus A320 Neo fleet, and hoped for an early resolution.

Since the induction of A320 Neos in March 2016, IndiGo has intermittently been facing engine issues and has been forced to ground these aircraft on several occasions.

"The Neos continue to face issues, resulting in parts going out sooner then they should, and we are not happy about the situation," Bhatia said during the post-earnings analysts call today.
