Boeing can resume deliveries of its 787 Dreamliners as early as next week, the Federal Aviation Administration said on Friday after a data analysis problem halted deliveries of the wide-body jets.

“Boeing has addressed the FAA’s concerns,” the agency said in a statement. “The FAA may resume issuing airworthiness certificates next week.”

Boeing said earlier Friday it had completed the work needed to resume aircraft deliveries to airlines and other customers.

“We have completed the necessary analysis confirming that the aircraft continues to meet all relevant requirements and will not require any production or fleet actions,” a Boeing spokesman said. “The FAA will determine when 787 ticketing and deliveries will resume and we are working with our customers on the delivery time.

On February 23, Boeing suspended deliveries of the aircraft after discovering a data analysis error related to the aircraft’s forward pressure bulkhead.

Boeing shares rose on news that the issue had been resolved and traded higher later in the session.
