New Delhi:

Indian carriers IndiGo and GoAir, aircraft manufacturer Airbus and engine maker Pratt & Whitney will meet Indian civil aviation ministry officials on Tuesday to discuss ongoing issues with engines fitted to A320neo planes, three people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

IndiGo, India's biggest carrier by market share, and rival GoAir were forced to ground Airbus A320neo aircraft on several occasions over the past year due to problems with the planes' Pratt & Whitney engines.


Recent incidents involved an IndiGo aircraft making an emergency landing on December 11 due to smoke in the cabin. In another case on January 3, an IndiGo plane had to return to its base due to a technical problem.
