KINGFISHER SOLVES ENGINE TECHNICAL ISSUES

Kingfisher Airlines has settled technical issues with the US-based engine manufacturer IAE, which will allow the airline to fly its six out of the 15 currently grounded aircraft.

A Kingfisher Airlines spokesperson told local media: “An agreement has been reached with the engine manufacturer after a month of intense negotiations. Consequently, six Airbus A320 aircraft, which are currently on ground, will fly this month, thereby significantly boosting our capacity in the peak season.”

More details on what caused the grounding of the aircraft was not forthcoming from the airline. Although reports have pointed towards the fact the Federal Aviation Administrator called for a review of safety of IAE V2500, two-shaft turbofan engines which power the Airbus A320 family, in February following reports of cracks. The FAA is still reviewing these technical issues.
