Airbus has made significant progress with the new Pratt & Whitney engine and the reliability rate of the aircraft with those engines in India has touched 99.6 percent, said Anand Stanley, president and managing director of the company.
"Last year we delivered 67 aircrafts these are A320 Neos and 321 Neos. This year we expect to have some phenomenal deliveries, we are hoping to deliver more than one aircraft a week," Stanley said.
P&W engine-powered A320 Neos have been grappling with problems and aviation regulator DGCA has issued various directives to address these issues.
During February and March last year, 14 planes -- 11 of Indigo and three of Goair - were grounded by the aviation regulator DGCA following a series of mid-air engine shutdowns.
