Aviation regulator DGCA today said it was keeping a close watch on the probe into the recent fire incident and “mechanical” trouble in two Dreamliners at the London Heathrow airport and no decision has been taken on Air India’s fleet of these planes.

“We are keeping a close watch in the investigations (at Heathrow). We will take a view (on Air India’s fleet) only after we receive reports of the inquiry and know the causes behind these incidents,” DGCA chief Arun Mishra told PTI here.

The two incidents — a fire on board a parked Boeing 787 and another plane returning to the airport soon after take-off on suspicion of a “mechanical” problem — came less than two months since the Dreamliners again took the skies after remaining grounded globally for over four months following battery fire incidents.
