CHICAGO, May 14 (Xinhua) -- Boeing delivered a Dreamliner made in its Everett plant in Washington to Japanese carrier All Nippon Airways on Tuesday.
This indicates that the Chicago-based company resumed deliveries of its Dreamliners to airlines after a 100-day grounding of the plane model by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and subsequently aviation regulators around the world due to overheating onboard batteries problem.
Chicago Tribune reported that Boeing plans to complete all of its planned deliveries of 787s for this year, and for this purpose, the company has sped up the production to seven planes per month and plans to accelerate the production to 10 per month by the end of this year.
After implementing a fix for the battery system approved by FAA, airlines around the world are beginning to fly their Dreamliners again. Air India said it will resume flying its 787s on Wednesday; ANA said it will resume flights on June 1; United Airlines, the only U.S. carrier operating 787s, said it will resume Dreamliner flights on May 20. Other foreign carriers have already resumed 787 flights.
