Japan's All Nippon Airways first to resume Dreamliner flights
The airline with the greatest number of Boeing’s new Dreamliner jets will be the first to resume commercial flights with it on Sunday, four months after the 787 jet was grounded over safety fears.
Japan’s All Nippon Airways will fly passengers on five 787 flights this month, before launching its scheduled services on the plane on June 1.
Sunday’s first will fly passengers from Chitose, on the northern island of Hokkaido in Japan, to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport.
An ANA Dreamliner was forced to make an emergency landing in western Japan in January, when instruments on board indicated a battery error. That incident, plus smoke and an onboard fire, saw authorities worldwide ground the 787. Boeing has been tweaking the battery since January.
Of UK airlines, Thomson will be the first to fly passengers on the Dreamliner, with passengers travelling to Cancun and Florida from July 8 expected to be on the 787. British Airways said it will announce its first flights on the plane when its first Dreamliner is delivered.
