The US Federal Aviation Administration said it has approved additional extended operations for the Boeing (NYSE: BA) 787 Dreamliner.
The move will allow 787s to be operated up to 330 minutes from a landing field and signals continued confidence in the airplane´s technical capabilities.
Dreamliners have been allowed to operate up to 180 minutes away from a landing field since they were introduced into service in 2011. Granting of the expanded operational permission will allow airlines to introduce additional routes after they meet the proof of capabilities requirements and receive approval from their own regulatory agencies for such operations.
