A day after the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) directed the grounding of 11 A320 neo aircraft, budget carrier Indigo cancelled 47 flights on various routes, while GoAir had to cancel some flights originating out of eight centres.

The two airlines complied with the DGCA directive by grounding the late serial number PW GTF engines resulting in the cancellation of some flights.

Citing safety concerns, the aviation industry regulator asked IndiGo and GoAir to ground a total of 11 A320neo aircraft fitted with Pratt & Whitney 1100 engines.

Out ot the 11, eight are operated by IndiGo while GoAir operates three, the DGCA said in a statement.
