SEATTLE, 8 Feb. 2013. Boeing (NYSE:BA) officials have issued a statement in response to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB)’s report as to the origin of the Japan Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner fire of 7 Jan. in Boston.

Boeing’s statement reads:

The company remains committed to working with the NTSB, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and our customers to maintain the high level of safety the traveling public expects and that the air transport system has delivered. We continue to provide support to the investigative groups as they work to further understand these events and as we work to prevent such incidents in the future. The safety of passengers and crew members who fly aboard Boeing airplanes is our highest priority.

The 787 was certified following a rigorous Boeing test program and an extensive certification program conducted by the FAA. We provided testing and analysis in support of the requirements of the FAA special conditions associated with the use of lithium ion batteries. We are working collaboratively to address questions about our testing and compliance with certification standards, and we will not hesitate to make changes that lead to improved testing processes and products.
