US air-safety regulators on Tuesday approved Boeing's plan to fix 787 batteries for testing, a major step forward to get the planes, grounded worldwide, flying again.

"The Federal Aviation Administration today approved the Boeing Commercial Airplane Company's certification plan for the redesigned 787 battery system... and the company's plan to demonstrate that the system will meet FAA requirements," the agency said in a statement.
