US: Boeing to resume deliveries of Dreamliners

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced on Monday that it will resume deliveries of Boeing 787 Dreamliners, which were suspended due to production defects. The company has not offered them to customers since May last year.

American Airlines is awaiting delivery of 40 ordered aircraft. The airlines said they expect to receive the wide-body jet from Wednesday. Like United Airlines, it has been left without new flights amid a surge in interest in travel in recent months following the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Dreamliners are a major source of income for Boeing because most costs are paid when the aircraft is delivered. However, the manufacturer had to compensate buyers for significant delays. The company said earlier this year that the problems with the 787, including production downtime, would cost $5.5 billion,” CNBC noted.

According to the FAA, Boeing has made the necessary modifications to ensure the 787 Dreamliner meets all applicable standards. It declared that each aircraft would be inspected before the certificate was issued and accepted for delivery.

FAA Administrator Billy Nolan visited the Boeing factory in South Carolina last Thursday to meet with safety inspectors.

“We continue to work transparently with the FAA and our customers to resume 787 deliveries,” Boeing said.
