New Delhi: Two Airbus A320 Neos on Monday safely returned to their origin airports following snags. An IndiGo Neo saw high vibrations on one of its Pratt & Whitney (PW) engines on a domestic flight. While, an India-bound GoAir Neo had to return to Singapore following oil smell in the aircraft. Both the planes are grounded for checks.
The IndiGo Neo (VT-ITK) was operating as 6E-552 from Delhi to Hyderabad. "There was high vibration in one engine for 15 seconds. The plane safely returned to Delhi," said a senior aviation official.
The GoAir Neo (VT-WJJ) had taken off from Sigapore for Bengaluru as G8-028. "This aircraft had to return to Singapore Changi due to oil smell in cockpit and cabin.
A GoAir spokesperson said flight G8 28 “had an air turn back on priority shortly after takeoff following a technical issue. There were 158 passengers on board. The aircraft is currently being attended to by the GoAir engineering team. At GoAir, safety of passengers and crew is of paramount importance and we sincerely regret any inconvenience caused to our passengers. The aircraft has now been cleared to take off for Bengaluru.”
