Rolls-Royce share price: Air New Zealand cancels flights amid engine issues

On Wednesday, Air New Zealand's Auckland-Buenos Aires service was two hours enroute to Argentina when it turned back to Auckland after the crew was "alerted to abnormal indications on one of the engines", the TAIC said on its website. In August last year, All Nippon Airways announced it would replace all 100 Rolls-Royce engines on its fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliners following three engine failures earlier in the year.

During peak months the airlines will jointly operate a total of 35 return services a week between Singapore and New Zealand, including Christchurch and Wellington flights.

Air New Zealand has been forced to ground some of its global flights after revealing some of the Rolls-Royce engines mounted had to be inspected.

It's acceptable for Russian athletes to compete under the IOC's terms, two-time gold medalist pole vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva said, according to Interfax.

The engine manufacturer does not have any replacement engines available while this maintenance work is undertaken which means some schedule changes "unavoidable", the carrier said. The New Zealand Herald reported passengers experienced shaking and heard "weird noises" on the flight to Tokyo.

The Star Alliance carrier says that following two recent events, Rolls-Royce has advised that its fleet's Trent 1000 engines "require maintenance sooner than previously indicated".

Currently, Air New Zealand and Singapore Airlines are in a joint venture on the Singapore to Auckland route, together operating two daily services.

The Transport Accident Investigation Commission is investigating the incidents involving the Trent 1000 engines.
