Air India About to Resume Dreamliner Flights

Air India, the national carrier for India, is planning to resume Boeing 787 Dreamliner flights next week.  The airline owns six of the Dreamliner jets and an official with the airline said they are performing test flights today.  The unnamed official said they plan to resume commercial flights next week and that international flights might begin as early as three weeks.  India’s directorate general of civil aviation Arun Mishra has said they are satisfied with the improvements to the battery system.


The Dreamliner was grounded by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in mid-January, a move that was followed by regulators around the world.  This came after two incidents that involved the plane’s batteries, a fire on one parked plane and a smoking battery on another plane inflight.  Boeing has created a new battery system that has been approved by the FAA.  Air India ordered a total of 27 Dreamliners from Boeing.
