A320neo grounding impact: Airfares shoot up as 65 flights cancelled

Indigo-GoAir

This comes after the Indian civil aviation regulator Monday directed these airlines to immediately ground 11 aircrafts fitted with Pratt & Whitney's PW1100 engines. In an announcement on its website during the day, IndiGo said it has cancelled 47 flights across its domestic network for today. The canceled flights include 42 Indigo and six of GoAir.

In case of Indigo, the flights are canceled to Mumbai, Kolkata, Jaipur, Bhubaneswar, Chennai, Pune, Srinagar, Delhi, Dehradun, Amritsar, Hyderabad and Bangalore among others.

After cancelling 65 flights yesterday, domestic carriers IndiGo and GoAir cancelled another 48 flights on Wednesday as nearly one-third of their A320 Neo aircraft fleet remained grounded for the third day following a safety directive by the DGCA. "We have seen fares of over Rs 12,000 for a one-way between Delhi and Mumbai flight for today", Sharat Dhall, COO (B2C) at online travel portal Yatra.com, said on Tuesday.

The directive followed instances of the engines shut-down during flights and rejected take-offs involving the A320 neo family aircraft.

On February 13, DGCA had said that it was monitoring engine glitches to ensure that safety is not compromised at any time. But till Monday night sudden decrease in the number of flights have not affected domestic airfares.

The aviation sector in the country may remain affected with IndiGo and GoAir likely to face more disruptions in the coming weeks. However, the two carriers had on Tuesday said they were taking measures to minimise inconvenience to the passengers whose flights have been cancelled by booking them on alternate flights as well giving them the option of cancelling or rescheduling their travel without any extra cost.

In the national capital, Prabhu said the planes have been grounded only for passenger safety.

"This is only for passenger safety and airlines have also responded positively".
