Europe approves Boeing 787 battery design change


The European Aviation Safety Agency said Tuesday it had approved Boeing's proposed battery design change for its 787 planes, after a problem with overheating grounded the jetliner in January.

The green light, which follows a similar move in the United States, will allow the "European operated aircraft to return to service as soon as the modification will be installed", the Germany-based agency said in a statement.
