Boeing Sets 787 Delivery Date After Regulatory Approvals

Boeing Co.’s 787 Dreamliner will be delivered to Japanese carrier All Nippon Airways on Sept. 25, three years behind schedule, after today’s regulatory approvals of the world’s first plastic-composite jet.

The aircraft will arrive in Tokyo for its initial customer on Sept. 28 after contractual delivery three days earlier, Boeing and All Nippon said in a statement. The plane received its so-called type certifications from U.S. and European governments, verifying that it complies with aviation standards, in a ceremony at Boeing’s factory in Everett, Washington.
