DelhiDesk Go Airlines India Ltd, also known as Go Air, has been asked by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to stop selling tickets with immediate effect due to a crisis caused by half of the airline’s Airbus SE fleet being idle. The engines of the planes failed prematurely, with the combustor deteriorating faster than it should. The airline has lost INR108bn ($1.3bn) as a result of the planes going out of service. Go Air filed for insolvency last week, seeking protection from lessors and creditors. The court is yet to deliver its final ruling. Deutsche Lufthansa AG has also been hit by a shortage of engines and spare parts and has grounded a third of its Airbus SE A220 fleet in Zurich because of issues with Pratt engines.
