It was EASA that first issued an emergency airworthiness directive following in-flight shut down in A320 neo fleet worldwide fitted with PW1100 engines (from serial number 450 and beyond) on February 9.
"The grounding of the Indigo and Go Air A320 neo with one PW1100 engine is a unilateral decision from DGCA India. EASA has not been involved in this decision," EASA said in an e-mailed statement to PTI.
Noting that it is following closely the situation of the P&W engine issues on the A320 neo with Airbus, the agency said, "such a decision (grounding the affected fleet) is not deemed necessary by EASA for the time being".
On March 12, the DGCA said A320 neos fitted with PW1100 engines beyond ESN 450 have been grounded with immediate effect as it cited safety of aircraft operations.
Also, DGCA had said it would be in touch with stakeholders and review the situation in due course and when the issue is addressed by EASA and P&W.
