Last Update: November 20, 2018 / 11:09:42 GMT/Zulu time
The Aviation Herald received information that following the occurrence the left hand engine (CFM56) was immediately replaced.
On Nov 20th 2018 the airline reported the cause of the smell and light smoke was an engine detergent. The left engine had undergone specific maintenance, a compressor wash was subsequently conducted with the detergent to remove possible soiling from the compressor area. An engine run up was done, it appears however the detergent was more persistent and entered the air ducts.
