InterGlobe Aviation clarified to the bourses during market hours yesterday, 13 March 2018, that it is in receipt of the communication from DGCA directing the company to ground certain A320Neo aircraft due to an ongoing Pratt & Whitney engine issue. The company is in the process of implementing the directions of the DGCA.
Upon implementation of the DGCA's directive, the company will have a total of nine A320Neo aircraft on the ground. This has resulted in cancellation of certain flights. Given that the company has multiple flights to the same destination, it has proactively tried to re-accommodate all its affected passengers on other flights. All affected passengers have been given the option to either choose another flight at no additional cost or cancel their booking and get a full refund without any cancellation charges.
