The Federal Aviation Administration announced on Friday that Boeing can start taking orders for its 787 Dreamliners again as early as next week, following the suspension of delivery due to a problem with data analysis.
Boeing “resolved the FAA’s concerns,” the agency said in a statement. The FAA might start issuing airworthiness certificates again the following week.
The work required to resume plane deliveries to airlines and other customers was finished, according to a statement from Boeing earlier on Friday.
A Boeing representative said, "We have finished the necessary study that verifies the aeroplane continues to meet all applicable requirements and does not require production or fleet action. "The FAA will decide when 787 ticket sales and deliveries resume, and we are coordinating delivery dates with our customers."
On hearing that the problem had been fixed, Boeing’s shares increased and the trading session ended over 1% higher.
Following the discovery of a data-analysis issue pertaining to the aircraft’s forward pressure bulkhead on February 23, Boeing put a halt to delivery of the aircraft.
The twin-aisle planes’ numerous manufacturing issues led Boeing to halt deliveries for the majority of the two years prior to August, making it the most recent in a succession of delivery pauses for the jets.
Large carriers like American Airlines are among the Dreamliner’s clients. The airlines would receive the jets as they prepare for the busy spring and summer travel seasons, which account for a sizable amount of their earnings.
