FAA Clears 787s to Fly Again

Fix for battery problems approved

|

The Federal Aviation Administration approved Boeing Co.'s proposed fix for the lithium-ion battery systems on its 787 passenger jets, which have been grounded since January.

The FAA said it will require airlines flying 787s to install containment and venting systems for the batteries. The agency also will instruct carriers to replace the batteries and their chargers with modified components.
