Air India will resume flying its Boeing 787 Dreamliners from Wednesday, Civil Aviation Minister Ajit Singh said on Tuesday, almost four months after the planes were grounded due to safety concerns.Air India has six 787s and has 21 more on order. The planes have been grounded worldwide since January following incidents of overheating in the batteries providing auxiliary power. Boeing has since worked to develop new battery housings to prevent a repeat of the incidents.Air India will start a 787 domestic flight on Wednesday and will start international flights on May 22, Singh told reporters, adding that all six of its Dreamliners would be ready for flight by the end of the month. Air India would also acquire eight more 787s by December, he added.He also said Air India was expected to post a net loss of about INR40 billion rupees (USD$730 million) for the current fiscal year ending March 2014, compared with about INR52 billion rupees in the previous fiscal year.
