United Airlines will re-launch the Boeing 787 Dreamliner on 20 May 2013 on routes from its hub in Houston, Texas, to domestic travel destinations. It will be re-introduced on the Denver, Colorado – Tokyo, Japan route on 10 June 2013.
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is considered to be the world’s most advanced and fuel efficient aircraft. It was grounded earlier this year because of problems with its batteries.
Boeing has already converted two of United’s six Dreamliners to the new FAA standards and will soon convert the remainder of United’s fleet.
“Our customers responded extremely well when we introduced the 787, and we know they’ll welcome it back,” said Pete McDonald, United’s chief operations officer.
“Boeing and the FAA were diligent in their work to fix the battery issue, and now the Dreamliner is poised to fly the missions we planned and provide our customers with the features and reliability they want on their long-haul flights.”
