WASHINGTON (dpa-AFX) – The US aircraft manufacturer Boeing can hand over its long-haul 787 Dreamliner jet to customers again. The US Federal Aviation Administration announced on Friday that Boeing had dispelled the agency’s concerns. The Airbus rival had to stop deliveries around two weeks ago because additional investigations of a component of the fuselage were necessary.
The Dreamliner – one of Boeing’s most important aircraft models – has repeatedly caused problems in recent years. Due to various production defects, the aircraft was not allowed to be handed over to customers from May 2021 to August 2022. When it was last re-registered, the FAA announced that it would in future check each 787 individually before certifying its airworthiness./hbr/DP/he
