Qatar Airways Expects to Operate Dreamliner Flights Soon

Qatar Airways expects to be operating four Boeing 787 aircraft in the air by the end of April.  In a statement, Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said that they should have the planes up and flying by the end of the month.  The airline owns five of the Dreamliners and a team of mechanics will be arriving in Doha soon to make the modifications to the lithium-ion batteries on the planes.  The planes were grounded globally in mid-January due to safety issues with the batteries.

Boeing has recently conducted ground and flight tests to ensure their new battery solution solves the safety issues and they are working with the Federal Aviation Administration to get the planes back into operation.  Marc Birtel, a spokesperson for Boeing, says that as of yet they have not discussed a timeline for getting the planes back into operation.  Al Baker said that grounding the planes was a big problem for them because they had to rearrange flight schedules and delay the start of some routes.
