Fewer Airbus A320neo planes are reporting engine snags

  • In India, the biggest market for the A320neo workhorse, retrofits are 95% done
  • Pratt narrowed the number of in-flight engine shutdowns in India by as much as a factor of four in January

Airbus SE says it’s finally getting past the worst of its troubles with Pratt & Whitney engines that grounded dozens of its most-popular jets last year and led to dozens more being parked up awaiting turbines outside the planemaker’s factories.

In India, the biggest market for the A320neo workhorse, retrofits are 95% done and the rest will be completed in the next couple of months, Anand Stanley, Airbus’s India head, said in an interview ahead of the Bangalore Air Show. His comments come after the company said last week that fixes for the beleaguered program will be fully rolled out before the end of this year.

Pratt narrowed the number of in-flight engine shutdowns in India by as much as a factor of four in January compared with the same month in 2018, Stanley said. Toulouse, France-based Airbus now has some breathing room -- especially in the subcontinent, where the industry has been most critical of disruption at operators Indigo and GoAirlines India Pvt.
