FAA Approves 787 ETOPS

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has approved additional extended operations (ETOPS) for Boeing’s 787. This will allow 787s to operate 330 minutes from a landing field, and indicates continued confidence in the aircraft’s abilities. Since entering service in 2011 787s had only been allowed to operate 180 minutes from a suitable runway.
