(KERO) — Boeing is a step closer to resume deliveries of its 787 Dreamliner planes. The company has faced production issues with the 787 for more than two years.

In September 2020, the U.S Federal Aviation Administration said it was investigating manufacturing flaws in some 787 jetliners.

But Friday, the FAA approved Boeing's new inspection and modification plan, according to Reuters.

However, that means deliveries could resume as soon as next month. Meanwhile, Boeing did not confirm the approval.

The FAA says it will only issue air-worthiness certificates until it is confident that Boeing's quality control and manufacturing processes consistently produce 787 planes meeting FAA design standards.
