44 Airbus A321neos subject to engine inspection in Vietnam

February 01, 2024

Forty-four Airbus A321neos operated by two Vietnamese airlines will have their engines inspected following an urgent notice from the engine manufacturer, the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) has announced. The EASB, issued on November 3, 2023, has been applied from January 1, 2024 to promptly detect unusual failures from the engine production process, the CAAV said. The inspection process for each engine will take 250-300 days, according to the CAAV. Given that an Airbus A321neo is equipped with two engines, a total of 88 engines will undergo inspection as part of this process. Consequently, over 20 Airbus A321neos from both Vietjet and VNA are scheduled to be temporarily grounded for engine inspections in July of this year.
