Boeing has officially announced it’ll increase production for its 787 Dreamliner.
The ambition for the American plane maker is to up it from the previous three per month to four total units. This is a monthly rate they believe can be achieved.
Reuters reports the increase in production is in line with future goals at the company to continue increasing output.
The 787 series has largely, throughout the years, struggled to remain consistent. This follows directives the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued to adjust their aircraft. As a result, on numerous occasions, Boeing has been forced to suspend deliveries and/or production.
Most recently, the aircraft manufacturer has been forced to fix gaps that may be found in the forward pressure bulkhead. As a result of the modifications, Boeing has been scrambling to send off aircraft to customers that are already late.
