Boeing Ready to Resume 787 Deliveries, Bloomberg Reports

By SME Media Staff

Boeing Co. is ready to resume deliveries of the 787 Dreamliner by the end of March, Bloomberg News reported. No deliveries have taken place for five months while mechanics looked for structural flaws.

“We continue to expect to resume delivering 787s by the end of March,” the Chicago-based aircraft maker said in a statement, according to Bloomberg. “However, we will continue to take the time necessary and will adjust any delivery plans as needed.”

Boeing may deliver two or three 787s by March 31, Bloomberg reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has cleared two of four planes that the agency had conducted special inspections, according to the news service. Boeing has had more than 80 undelivered Dreamliners at company plants and a storage lot in California, Bloomberg said.
