DGCA bars IndiGo, GoAir from flying A320 Neos with PW engine to Port Blair or long overseas routes

Jan 18, 2019

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Thursday barred Airbus A320 Neos with Pratt & Whitney (PW) engines from flying to Port Blair or any other overseas route where an alternate landing place is over an hour away during any point in its entire journey over the ocean. This restriction will apply to IndiGo and GoAir that use PW engines on their A320 new engine option (Neo) aircraft.

“The flight from Kolkata to Port Blair is of almost 1.5-hour duration. This restriction has been imposed for safety reason as there must be an airport within one hour of flying time during entire journey of A320 Neo with PW engines so that the plane can safely land at the nearest alternate on a single engine when one engine develops a snag,” said a source. Twin engine planes can land on one engine at suitable nearest airport when an engine has a snag. IndiGo and GoAir together have over 100 PW-powered A320 Neos currently. There have been some instances of PW-powered Neos developing snags while flying to and from Port Blair.

Secondly, the no-long-overseas-flight decision has been taken for commercial reasons also. “When a Neo with faulty Pratt engine gets stuck in Port Blair, it takes longer for the airline to fly in man and material there to repair or replace the same. Examination of the faulty PW engine also takes longer there. And Port Blair is a small airport that has one less aircraft parking bay as long as the Neo remains grounded there, limiting its capacity,” added the source.

In addition, the DGCA has also asked IndiGo and GoAir to "create awareness among cabin and cockpit crew (pilots) about odour/burning smell/smoke (even if slightest) during approach phase and positive reporting to cockpit crew for necessary action…. Log all the cases detecting odours/ smoke in cabin during operation for necessary investigation and rectification. In all odour/smoke cases, engine to be inspected in detail and to be used only after rectification of defect.”

The regulator’s latest directives for PW-powered A320 Neos also include more rigorous checks on engine components.

The DGCA had about three years ago asked IndiGo and GoAir to avoid flying A320 Neo with PW engines to coastal areas. At that time, these engines were suffering lot of combustion chamber-related snags. PW had then told authorities here that could be happening due to high salinity and then DGCA advised IndiGo and GoAir to avoid flying to coastal areas. Later this restriction as removed when PW resolved the combustion chamber issues with its Neo engines.

The DGCA has so far not allowed A320 Neos with PW engines to be flown on routes where they are more than an hour away from a nearest airport at any point during the journey, due to the frequent snags in Pratt engines for this popular aircraft. The US and European aviation regulators have given this nod over the last two to three years.

As a result, the PW-powered A320 Neos with Indian carriers — IndiGo and GoAir — do not have “extended diversion time operations” (EDTO) clearance. This clearance is required for aircraft with two or more engines to operate routes where the nearest suitable airport to make an emergency landing or divert to is more than an 60 minutes away at any point during the origin-destination journey. The PW-powered Neos in India have to fly on routes where an alternate landing airport is within 60 minutes away during their entire journey.

Last year, IndiGo sought removal of restrictions on routes where its PW-powered A320 Neos aircraft can fly to enable them to operate this plane on longer sectors. With the latest restrictions, that approval seems unlikely in near future.

Perfect example of the sorry state of Indian aviation. This is just a way for TK to dump cheap EU connections to hurt the other airlines flying nonstop to the EU. How does 6E's schedule help the Delhi population? It is probably the stupidest schedule except when you consider TK's banks. 6E hasn't even started one flight and they already announce this. And so much for 6E connecting underserved cities (which actually has merit). To me this means TK is basically guaranteeing they will purchase X% of the seats.

Amid Pak airspace closure IndiGo Delhi-Istanbul debut flight to stop at Doha

15-03-2019

As Pakistan airspace continues to remain closed since February 27 in the wake of the IAF air strike in Balakot, IndiGo's Delhi-Istanbul plane may have to take a stop at Doha on its inaugural flight on March 20. "The flights on Delhi-Istanbul-Delhi route will be through Doha in Qatar if Pakistan does not open its airspace by March 20," said a senior airline official.

IndiGo poaches over 100 pilots

March 22, 2019

IndiGo is hiring more than 100 Boeing 737 commander level pilots, primarily those exiting Jet Airways, as the country’s biggest airline looks to overcome a flying-crew shortage and establish its dominance amid an exodus of personnel from the financially-stressed airline.

A top industry source aware of IndiGo’s hiring plans said that it would take six months to train the Boeing pilots so that they could fly A320s, an aircraft type IndiGo operates. In addition, the carrier has already hired about 130 expatriate pilots from all over the world.

India’s biggest airline by market share has had to cancel 30 daily flights primarily due to a shortage of commanders. Indi-Go has over 200 planes and a pilot strength of more than 3,000, including more than 1,200 commanders, of whom 50 are expatriates. It operates about 1,300 daily flights.

The airline aims to take delivery of 48 planes this year of the Airbus A320neo family, including the stretched 20-25 A321 Planes, which it plans to deploy on the medium haul international routes.

IndiGo Airlines plans to add 20-25 A321 Neos to its fleet this summer

March 23, 2019

Indigo Airlines plans to add 20-25 A321 Neos to its fleet this summer as it gears up for international and domestic expansion.

Indigo Airlines chief commercial officer William Boulter said the airline had ordered 125 A321 Neos and 48 deliveries were expected this year. Over 50% of the new destinations could be on international routes, he said.
Boulter, who was speaking with the media after the inaugural run of Indigo’s Delhi-Istanbul flight, said the airline was bullish about flying to China and other international destinations. “We are looking very seriously into other points in Southeast Asia, notably Vietnam and Myanmar. We also are looking at Saudi Arabia on the West side,” he said.

“Over half of our expansion this year will be international and this will take our international capacity from 15% to 20%,” he said. Boulter said the company was hoping to fly to London this year. “We had slots with Gatwick but they expired,” he said. “However, we are looking at Istanbul as an option as well.”

The airline’s flights to Istanbul are currently operating via Doha due to closure of airspace above Pakistan. “The airline has started a daily operation and will add a second one to it later this month,” he said. The airline has also announced flights from more Indian cities to overseas destinations including China, Vietnam, Myanmar, UK and Saudi Arabia.

Boulter said he was bullish on China and the airline hoped to select flight destinations there soon. According to him, China presents a big opportunity since it has 42 flights into India per week. In contrast, Indian carriers have only 5 flights into China per week. IndiGo is likely to start operations to China in October-November 2019.

Indigo has a codeshare agreement with Turkish airlines and aims to connect to 20 destinations in Europe through this pact.

IndiGo joins other carriers in taking up Jet Airways vacant slots

April 9, 2019

With prime slots occupied by Jet Airways at the congested Mumbai airport getting vacated, rival airlines have been grabbing the opportunity to expand their operations from the base.

On Monday, India’s largest airline IndiGo announced expansion of its international network from the city, besides launching additional domestic destinations, to cater to the demand following withdrawal of several routes by Jet Airways.

The three new overseas services include daily non-stop flights to Jeddah and Dammam and Abu Dhabi, while the domestic services will be launched to cities such as Indore, Kochi and Patna among others, IndiGo said in a release.

“We are strengthening Mumbai as a key travel hub for domestic and international connectivity from India. We are adding Jeddah and Dammam effective June 5 and July 5, respectively. Mumbai is the commercial hub of India and we see great potential connecting the Middle East with this city,” said William Boulter, chief commercial officer, IndiGo.

Jeddah being the commercial capital and the gateway for Haj, Dammam being the growth centre in Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi being a major cultural and commercial centre in UAE, are critical markets for strengthening IndiGo’s presence in the Middle East, he further said.

The services on the Mumbai-Abu Dhabi route will be operational from June 5, the airline’s release added.

“Additionally, given the rush in summer traffic and the shortfall in industry capacity, IndiGo is temporarily adding approximately 20 new departures each from Mumbai and Delhi in a phased manner from April 15,” the airline said.

Other carriers, including Vistara and AirAsia India, too have expanded services from Mumbai with Jet vacating slots.

Flying Indigo! don’t forget to check terminal from April 15

April 11, 2019

Starting April 15, if you are flying any of Indigo’s 26 domestic flights numbered between 6E 5300 and 6E 5399, then make sure you head to the Mumbai airport’s Terminal 2 at Sahar and not the domestic Terminal 1 at Santacruz.

Indigo which has benefited from the temporary redistribution of slots used by Jet Airways, will operate additional domestic flights to Indore, Nagpur, Varanasi, Kochi, Bengaluru, Vadodara, Patna, Chennai, and Hyderabad from T2.

Since existing flights to the above destinations will continue to operate from T1 and is likely to cause confusion among flyers, the airline on Wednesday sent out mailers and put out announcements on its website.

Vistara and AirAsia India were the first airlines to take up slots vacated by Jet Airways. Since Vistara already operates out of T2, it will not need to make any changes. SpiceJet too has taken slots out of Jet’s kitty.

On April 5, SpiceJet introduced a daily direct flight between Mumbai and Bangkok. “Additional frequencies have also been introduced on the Mumbai-Kolkata-Mumbai (third frequency), Mumbai-Chennai-Mumbai (third frequency), and Mumbai-Varanasi-Mumbai (second frequency) sectors. They will be operational daily and the airline will deploy its Boeing 737 NG aircraft on both the international and domestic routes,” a spokesperson said.

However, a good chunk of slots was taken up by IndiGo. Currently IndiGo flies to Dubai, Doha, Male and Muscat from Mumbai. With the new slots, the airline has announced that it will launch flights to Saudi Arabia from Mumbai. Jeddah and Dammam will be IndiGo’s 17th and 18th international destinations.

Jet Airways used to fly to Jeddah, Riyadh and Dammam from Mumbai, but cancelled flights owing to the current financial crisis. Air India and Saudia presently fly to Jeddah and Riyadh from Mumbai. IndiGo’s maiden foray into Saudi Arabia will begin with the Mumbai-Jeddah route on June 5.

This is a smart move by IndiGo. Turkish Airlines flies to a large number of destinations around the world. They have been wanting to expand their service to IndiA for quite some time. Surely a Win-win deal.

Is this flight even going to be profitable, 2 stops just to get to Europe or 1 stop to Istanbul which you can do with myriad other carriers. No wonder they have deferred the 2nd flight.

IndiGo is in talks with Airbus SE for another large plane order in a sign Asia’s biggest budget carrier has no intention of letting up on a blistering pace of expansion.

The Indian airline, which adds an aircraft to its fleet every week, is in discussions to buy a longer-range version of the European planemaker’s newest narrow-body jet, according to Chief Executive Officer Ronojoy Dutta.

Existing orders will see IndiGo through the next two years, Dutta said in an interview with Bloomberg News Editor-in-Chief John Micklethwait. After that, the carrier is considering adding new planes including Airbus’s long-distance A321neo LR and the yet-to-be-released A321 XLR, he said.

“When we order, we’ll order in bulk for sure,” Dutta said in New Delhi in his first interview since becoming CEO of the airline in January. “I can’t give you a tentative number, but it will be large. We need longer range.”
