EASA on February 9 issued an emergency airworthiness directive (EAD), warning of a potential "dual engine" inflight shutdown on A320neo-family aircraft powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1100G geared turbofan (GTF) engines.

"The above issue is entirely different from No. 3 bearing failure and combustion chamber failure experienced initially by PW1100 engines, which have been addressed." the official said.

"Airbus has also issued Alert Operators Transmission providing instructions to de-pair the affected engines and discontinue Extended range Twin-engine Operations (ETOPS) for aircraft fitted with affected engines".

The engine issue has been linked to "several" reports of "in-flight shutdown", European officials say.
