Pratt and Whitney, the American aerospace manufacturer has found a solution to the problems faced by the A320 new engine Neo aircraft as per Airbus. The aircraft stated that a solution has been approved by the European Aviation Safety Agency and that PW has already started delivering engines with a much advanced configuration. Airbus had decided not to deliver any of the A320 Neo to the customer airlines till the problems were dealt with. India had also grounded Neos of IndiGo and GoAir. A senior DGCA official stated that both IndiGo and GoAir had started to get a pre-450 serial number engines from PW. Since hundreds of A320 Neos have been ordered by the two airlines together, the decision of Airbus to stop the delivery of the planes containing PW engines took a severe blow to both their growth plans.

Airbus also denied revealing any of the delivery schedules of their aircraft since it is prerogative of their customers. However, the new solution that PW has found in order to fix the issues in the Neo engines is yet to be tested for effectiveness. Before both the issues took place, the head of Airbus India Mr. Srinivasan Dwarakanath had assessed that Airbus would deliver one aircraft a week to the Indian carriers over the next decade. He also said they had to deliver 545 planes to the Indian carriers out of which 515 need A320 new engine option or Neos.

Due to the troubles arising in the PW, Airbus was facing delivery delays which is why it started to focus on building a strong supply chain. Currently, the European major does not have any plans to have a final assembly line and delivery centre in India while having the same in China for narrow as well as wide-body planes.
