Dream­liner fault

The Press - - News -

Air New Zealand is to can­cel some flights after a sec­ond en­gine fault on its Dream­lin­ers. A flight to Ja­pan had to re­turn ear­lier this week after the pi­lot elected to shut down one of the plane’s en­gines as a pre­cau­tion. A sec­ond is­sue arose on Wed­nes­day on a flight to Ar­gentina after it ex­pe­ri­enced an en­gine is­sue shortly after leav­ing Auck­land and was also forced to re­turn. En­gine mak­ers Roll­sRoyce says some of the Trent 1000 en­gines in the air­line’s Boe­ing 787-9 fleet re­quire main­te­nance sooner than pre­vi­ously in­di­cated. The Trans­port Ac­ci­dent In­ves­ti­ga­tion Com­mis­sion has opened in­quiries into both events.

Cus­tomers are ad­vised to check the Travel Alerts sec­tion of the Air New Zealand web­site.
