Boeing is expected to resume deliveries of its 787 Dreamliners in the coming days, the Federal Aviation Administration said Monday.
Deliveries of the wide-body jetliners have been suspended for much of the past two years as regulators and Boeing reviewed a series of manufacturing flaws.
“Boeing has made the necessary changes to ensure that the 787 Dreamliner meets all certification standards,” the FAA said in a statement. “The FAA will inspect each aircraft before an airworthiness certificate is issued and cleared for delivery.”
American’s CFO Derek Kerr last month estimated the carrier would receive a Dreamliner from Boeing in early August, meaning the airline will be the first or among the first to receive one of the planes from Boeing’s South Carolina factory again.
