Reuters - IndiGo Airlines has grounded five Airbus A320neo planes at New Delhi airport after issues with Pratt & Whitney aircraft engines, India’s biggest low-cost carrier said last week.

The planes are expected to be back in service in the second half of August, IndiGo owner InterGlobe Aviation said in a statement.

In March, India’s aviation regulator ordered Airbus A320neo aircraft fitted with certain Pratt & Whitney engines to be grounded immediately.

United Technologies-owned Pratt & Whitney said separately it was working with airlines to address the issue.

Engine removals were being planned and coordinated with the airlines as Pratt & Whitney installs newer engines, it said via email.
