Working with Pratt & Whitney after latest engine inspection: Indigo

InterGlobe Aviation, which owns India's top airline IndiGo, said on Wednesday that it is working with Pratt & Whitney to assess the impact on the company's fleet after the engine maker's latest inspection of its engines.

"We are working closely with P&W to assess and minimise any potential impact to our fleet," InterGlobe said in a statement on Wednesday.

Pratt & Whitney is an American aerospace manufacturer with global service operations. It is a subsidiary of RTX Corporation.

Pratt's owner Raytheon on Tuesday said that a 'rare condition' in powdered metal meant 1,200 of more than 3,000 engines, built for the twin-engined Airbus A320neo between 2015 and 2021, have to be removed from planes and inspected for micro-cracks that would point to fatigue.

This news comes a month after IndiGo placed a record order for 500 narrowbody jets from Airbus. The airline still has almost 480 jets left in the Airbus pipeline from previous orders.
