Air India Launches Dreamliner Test Flights

May 09, 2013 No Comments by

Air India has launched test flights of its Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, which have been fitted with new battery packs following battery fire incidents in January, as the first of these sophisticated planes was flown from Mumbai to Delhi via Ahmedabad.

By Friday, two Dreamliners will be test-flown several times daily between Delhi and Amritsar so that the pilots and cabin crew get the experience of several landings and take-offs, airline officials said. The national carrier has already announced that it would launch Dreamliner flights from next week on the domestic sector and start international operations by the third week of May.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
