Boeing to boost 787 production after deliveries resume - report

The Boeing Company is planning to up the production of its 787 Dreamliners, once the US air regulatory bodies give the aircraft manufacturer a green light to resume its deliveries, reported the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday, citing a source familiar with the matter.

According to the source, the company is aiming to boost the production of the wide-body jet to three aircraft per month, from previously making one a month. After six months, Boeing is planning to further increase production to five 787 Dreamliners per month.

Nonetheless, the source noted that further decisions to rise production will depend on the aircraft's demand. In the past two years, Boeing was unable to deliver Dreamliners as a result of numerous production flaws.
