Number of Airbus A320neo planes cross 100-mark in India

The number of Airbus A320neo planes in the country has crossed the 100-mark, including 50 with budget carrier IndiGo alone, despite some of these planes with Pratt & Whitney (P&W) engines reporting serious glitches such as mid-air engine shut-down.

At present, four domestic carriers- Government-run Air India and private airlines IndiGo, GoAir and Vistara- have A320neo planes in their fleets beside other aircraft.

The A320neos operated by IndiGo and GoAir are fitted with P&W engines, while the planes in Air India and Vistara fleets are powered by CFM engines.

"With budget carrier IndiGo taking five aircraft in the previous month, the number of A320neo planes in the country now stands at 102," according to a source.
