GoAirA GoAir Airbus A320 Neo aircraft, which had to make an emergency landing at Goa International Airport Wednesday night, has been grounded due to engine related issues.

 
The airline’s engineers and Airbus officials are still analysing the problem that led to the technical snag which forced the plane to make an emergency landing en-route to Mumbai.

 

The Kochi to Mumbai GoAir flight had 166 passengers on board when it made an emergency landing in Goa due to a technical snag, sources said.

 

“The aircraft is still parked at the bay. It is a technical issue with the engine. Engineers have checked the aircraft and are still working on the engine,” an Airports Authority of India (AAI) official posted at Goa airport said.

 

Sources said that the aircraft’s Pratt & Whitney engines malfunctioned, prompting the pilot to request an emergency landing at Goa.

 

In March this year, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) had asked Pratt & Whitney to fix the issues related to its engines powering A320 neo planes flown by the Indian carriers within a specified time.

 

All the 166 passengers were deplaned.”

 

The airline arranged for a replacement aircraft and has placed the incident under investigation.

 
GoAir has already grounded two A320 aircraft due to engine-related issues.
