Boeing again halts deliveries of 787 aircraft

Boeing said the contracts with the US military would ensure the continuation of the Harpoon program through 2026 and restart the SLAM ER production line

American aerospace giant, Boeing has again halted deliveries of its 787 aircraft after US federal regulators sought more information about its production flaws, according to a statement released by the company.

In the statement issued on Friday, Boeing said it is working with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to provide more information about the company’s analysis and documentation of work on new 787s, Xinhua news agency reported.

The company added that the delay affects “near-term” deliveries, but will not affect the 787s that have already been delivered to customers.

“Boeing still needs to show that its proposed inspection method would meet FAA’s federal safety regulations,” the FAA said.

According to a report by Bloomberg News, the company said it chose to suspend shipments of the plane, because the FAA hadn’t approved its proposed system of compliance.

Deliveries of 787s were previously halted for five months until this March due to flaws in the fuselage and other issues.
