P&W engine issues delay GoAir’s overseas flights


The delayed delivery of Pratt & Whitney (P&W) enginepowe­red Airbus A320 Neo planes along with regulatory approvals has affected GoAir’s plans for internatio­nal operations, which are expected to commence only early next year, an airline source said. The Wadia group-promoted budget airline had received the government’s nod to go overseas in August, 2016, with approvals to fly to nine internatio­nal markets — China, Vietnam, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Maldives and Qatar. “The whole thing is delayed because of the delay in deliveries of aircraft due to P&W engine challenges,” a senior official of the airline said.
