Engine vibration: IndiGo Delhi-Vadodara flight diverts safely to Jaipur

New Delhi: An IndiGo flight winging its way from Delhi to Vadodara on Thursday (July 14) night diverted safely to Jaipur as a precautionary measure following an engine snag. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has ordered a probe into this.

“(There were) vibrations in the engines for a fraction of a second. The pilots decided to divert to Jaipur as a precautionary measure,” said officials probing this case. The Airbus A320 had taken off from Delhi at 7.30 pm.

An IndiGo spokesperson said: “IndiGo flight 6E-859, operating between Delhi and Vadodara was diverted to Jaipur on July 14, 2022. There was a caution message indicated to the pilot enroute. As a precaution, the pilot diverted the aircraft to Jaipur for further checks. The passengers have accommodated on an alternate aircraft for their onward journey.”

“In last four months, there have been at least one Pratt & Whitney and three CFM engine snags. They all had different issues and were commanded shutdown. They are being investigated closely in consultation with the original equipment manufacturers (PW & CFM),” said senior DGCA officials investigating these snags had recently told TOI.
