Airbus Group SE’s latest A320neo model suffered a fresh blow after No. 1 Indian airline IndiGo said it had been told its first jet would be late, two weeks after Qatar Airways Ltd. put back deliveries citing engine issues.

The planemaker blamed “industrial reasons” for the delay in Indigo handovers, the carrier’s owner, InterGlobe Aviation Ltd., said in a filing Monday. Airbus is “in discussions with our first customers on their delivery milestones,” spokesman Justin Dubon said, declining to comment on individual clients.
