Air New Zealand anticipates “significant” disruptions into the next year as it grapples with problems plaguing its Pratt & Whitney engines. The airline reported that approximately 600 to 700 engines globally will be affected by a maintenance issue in the Geared Turbo-Fan (GTF) jet engine fleet over the next three years. While there are no immediate safety concerns, this problem will reduce engine availability and is expected to have a notable impact on the airline’s schedule starting from January 2024. Air New Zealand will work with Pratt & Whitney to establish a new maintenance plan and assess its effects on the flight schedule, with adjustments likely in the coming months.
