HCMC – Vietnam Airlines and Vietjet will suspend over 40 Airbus A321 NEO aircraft from active service in order to allow for engine inspections at the request of engine manufacturer Pratt & Whitney.

The director of the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV), Dinh Viet Thang, recently issued a directive urging Vietnam Airlines and Vietjet Air to comply with the Alert Service Bulletin issued by Pratt & Whitney for inspecting the PW1100G engines in their Airbus A321 NEO fleet.

The two Vietnamese carriers are required to submit their implementation plans to the CAAV before February 15.

A total of 42 Airbus A321 NEO aircraft, comprising 22 from Vietjet and 20 from Vietnam Airlines, will need to halt operations for engine inspection.

Pratt & Whitney issued an urgent technical notification on November 3, 2023, with the aim of promptly identifying any abnormalities in the production process of the PW1100G engines installed on Airbus A321 NEO aircraft. This notice went into effect on January 1, 2024.
