Boeing S.C.’s North Charleston plant has delivered its first 787 Dreamliner since October, the airplane manufacturer said.

 “We have resumed 787 deliveries, following several months of engineering analysis and inspection work. Our commitment to safety and compliance led us to thoroughly examine many aspects of the program to ensure we continue to deliver airplanes that meet all regulatory requirements and Boeing’s highest quality standards,” Boeing said in an emailed statement.

The 787-9 was delivered to United Airlines on March 26, a spokesperson for the airline confirmed in an email.

The airline said it is pleased to take the delivery and that United Airline’s teams worked closely with Boeing throughout the manufacturing and delivery process.
