GoAir expects spare engines will get all its A320neos flying

Singapore: GoAir expects that increased availability of spare leased Pratt & Whitney PW1100G geared turbofan engines will soon allow it to fully utilise its Airbus A320neos.

The Indian low-cost carrier has been forced to ground some of its 17 A320neos due to combustor and knife-edge seal issues with the engines, and Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that two are presently in temporary storage.

Speaking in a television interview with BloombergQuint on 30 August, chief executive Cornelis Vrieswijk said that the airline is now seeing more spare PW1100Gs available to cover those taken off-wing for inspections and repairs.
