China formally approves Boeing's Dreamliner for use
BEIJING (Reuters) - China's civil aviation regulator on Thursday formally approved Boeing Co's (BA.N: Quote) 787 Dreamliner for use in the country, clearing the way for Chinese airlines to start operating the aircraft, which has been plagued with problems.
The regulator made the announcement in a short statement on its website (www.caac.gov.cn), without giving further details.
Investigators in the United States and Japan have yet to establish what caused the batteries to overheat.
