January 11, 2013 11:54 IST

DreamlinerIndia is concerned about the recent glitches in Boeing Co's 787 Dreamliner jets and is awaiting a safety report by the National Transportation Safety Board, a senior government official said on Friday.

The Dreamliner jet had three technical mishaps in as many days this month, including an electrical fire that caused severe damage to a plane.

US transportation authorities are launching a review of the Dreamliner, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters on Thursday.

State-controlled Air India has ordered 27 Dreamliners.
