A senior official at the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said that EASA on Friday issued an emergency airworthiness directive for A320 neo planes fitted with PW1100 engines having a particular serial number.
In a statement, Airbus said it had informed the airline customers affected by the issue.
IndiGo, the world's biggest buyer of the SE A320neo, was forced to replace faulty engines that power the jetliners in 69 cases over the last 18 months.
Airbus has suffered missteps with its latest aircraft, ranging from delays for the A350 stemming from seat glitches to engine issues afflicting its upgraded A320neo and A330neo models.
February 09-Airbus warned Friday that Pratt & Whitney engines on some of its A320neo jets have another problem, and European air safety officials issued emergency restrictions, the Wall Street Journal reported online Friday. Industry sources say a total of four such incidents or inflight shutdowns have been reported so far, but the actual number could be higher.
"Our precautionary measure of grounding the three aircraft resulted in cancellations of some of our flights", IndiGo said.
The A320neo specific PW1100G has been hounded with technical problems and reliability issues, while its variants were less affected.
According to the filing, IndiGo would continue to add A320 ceo and ATR aircraft to its fleet.
"We have identified the potentially affected engines and communicated with our customers", Pratt & Whitney said in a statement.
The A320neo is a revised version of the A319, A320, and A321 twin-engine aircraft with a "new engine option" (either the CFM International LEAP-1A or the Pratt & Whitney PW1100G), and large wing tips that help to reduce the jets' fuel consumption.
More turbines at both Airbus and Pratt facilities were affected, they said.
