Accordingly, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) ordered a special safety audit of IndiGo after several lapses of non-reporting and irregular reporting of IndiGo A320 Neo incidents come to light.
The last such lapse was reported by IANS on April 12, when IndiGo's Delhi-Mumbai flight had to perform a mid-air "turn back" manoeuvre on April 10.
That time, sources privy to development told IANS that the manoeuvre was performed after excessive vibration was noticed from aircraft's engine number two.
"Currently, airworthiness and air safety teams of the DGCA are conducting complete review of engineering and maintenance processes," a source told IANS.
The three day audit was started on Monday.
"IndiGo has received a limited number of show cause notices. IndiGo has responded accordingly and we can only comment on this matter after we have a discussion with the DGCA on this matter," the airline said in a statement.
Excessive vibration resulting in midair turn backs has emerged as the most common and serious safety issue with the P&W engine powered Neos of late.
