Airbus Delays Airbus A320neo Deliveries to IndiGo
IndiGo said it will receive its first A320neo in March, three months later than originally planned after Airbus said it could not deliver the aircraft on time, reports Reuters.
The airline had expected its first A320neo in December and nine more by March but said it would now take delivery of 24 aircraft in the year to March 2017, fewer than the 26 originally planned.
Airbus has been renegotiating delivery for the A320neo due to what it described as issues with documentation for new Pratt & Whitney engines.
IndiGo agreed the purchase of 250 A320neos in August, handing Airbus its largest-ever order by number of planes, and took its total A320-family orders to 530.
