Against the backdrop of powder metal issues, the airline said that a large number of incremental engines are being removed for shop visits between 2023 and 2026, and a majority of incremental engine removals are planned for 2023 and early 2024.
However, the company reconfirmed the earlier capacity guidance for the third quarter as well as for FY24. It also remained confident in meeting its long-term capacity guidance.
The airline will work with Pratt & Whitney in addressing the situation and implementing mitigation measures to minimise the impact of these AoGs, it said.
This comes after the engine manufacturer highlighted the impact of the powder metal issue that has affected its new generation GTF aircraft engine.
