Indigo airlines gets more time to replace engines

India’s largest airline IndiGo has had a breather from the aviation regulator over replacements of the controversial Pratt & Whitney engines on its Airbus A320neo aircraft.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation extended the earlier deadline of January 31 to May 31.

The aircraft forms a substantial chunk of Indigo’s fleet and the airline is in the process of replacing the engines, which have been facing glitches in both mid-air and on the ground since their induction in 2016.
