Boeing 787s get green signal for takeoff
Tokyo: Japan’s transport ministry has cleared Boeing’s 787 Dreamliners to resume flight.

Ethiopian Airlines may resume 787 operations Saturday, while United Airlines, the only U.S. airline with 787s in its fleet, is looking to resume flights in late May.

According to Japan Times, the move comes after the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration decided to allow 787s to fly again.

The battery glitch caused the 787 fleet to be grounded worldwide for more than three months.

All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines, which have more 787s than any other airlines in the world, have begun installing the modified lithium-ion battery on their planes, the report said.

They are planning to conduct test flights using revamped 787s for at least a month before resuming commercial operations, the report added.
