Boeing resumes 787 deliveries after 4-month halt

May 14, 2013

Boeing is delivering 787s again after a four-month halt while it fixed problems that led to smoldering batteries.

Boeing announced a delivery on Tuesday to Japan's All Nippon Airways.

Airline flights and deliveries were halted in mid-January after two battery incidents, including a fire on a plane that had just finished a flight. Boeing says it has fixed the issue.

Airlines have been slowly resuming flights. Ethiopian Airlines was the first to get the plane back in the air, on April 27. United Continental Holdings Inc. is set to resume 787 flights again on Monday.

Boeing says that even with the halt in deliveries, it is on track to meet its original goal of delivering more than 60 of the planes this year.
