The Federal Aviation Administration announced Monday that Boeing will resume deliveries of the 787 Dreamliner in the coming days. its distribution. The wide-body jet has been largely grounded for the past two years as regulators and Boeing investigate several manufacturing defects.
Boeing and American Airlines and United Airlines, which fly the new Dreamliner, are eagerly awaiting deliveries as travel demand picks up this year. Twin-aisle aircraft are often used on long-haul international routes.
American could receive its new Dreamliner as early as Wednesday, a person familiar with the matter told CNBC. The Dreamliner is an important source of revenue for Boeing. This is because most of the cost of an aircraft is paid when it is delivered to the customer. Earlier this year, the company said it would cost $5.5 billion to issue 787 issues, including production cuts.
The FAA said in a statement Monday, Boeing has made the necessary changes to ensure the 787 Dreamliner meets all certification standards. We inspect all airplanes before release. Boeing stock jumped more than 1% on the news shortly after the FAA’s announcement.
Boeing said last month it was in the final stages of restarting 787 deliveries, which CEO Dave Calhoun called the moment we’ve been waiting for. The company had an inventory of 120 aircraft at the end of the most recent quarter, according to securities reports.
Acting FAA Administrator Billy Nolen visited the Boeing 787 plant in South Carolina last Thursday and met with FAA safety inspectors about steps to improve production quality, the agency said.
Among the problems discovered was a small incorrect clearance in a section of the hall. Boeing said in a statement: We continue to work transparently with the FAA and customers to resume deliveries of 787s.
