Qatar Airways’ Dreamliner returns to the skies

Qatar Airways’ fleet of five Boeing 787 Dreamliners has resumed service after a worldwide grounding of the aircraft at the beginning of the year. The aircraft were grounded in January following a directive from the Federal Aviation Administration and Qatar’s Civil Aviation Authority.


Chief executive officer of Qatar Airways, Akbar Al Baker, was the first to board the reinstated aircraft, followed by president of Boeing Middle East, Jeffery Johnson, and Boeing's deputy fleet chief, David Silver. The Dreamliner service flew the VIP guests from Doha to Dubai, marking the return or the airline’s daily service served by the jet airliner.

“I always said I would be the first to fly on Qatar Airways’ 787 once it returned to service, and I’m thrilled that our Dreamliner fleet is back in the skies, providing our passengers with an unparalleled level of service and comfort,” said Al Baker. “After a setback that not only affected our own worldwide operations, but those of many carriers worldwide, we look forward to now deploying the Dreamliner on other key routes over the coming weeks. “

The Federal Aviation Administration ordered that all Boeing 787 Dreamliners be grounded in January this year, following a series of incidents that sparked concern over the aircraft’s safety. After nearly three months of testing Boeing announced it had completed its final tests on a revised battery design and Qatar Airways has become the first airline to reinstate the aircraft.Dubai skies

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is the world’s first major airliner to use composite materials as its main material in the construction of the airframe. The aircraft includes several new features aimed at improving passenger experience that include better lighting, seating and in-flight services such as free Wi-Fi.
