Latam expects the 787 Dreamliners to return to operations in June, Chief Financial Officer Alejandro De la Fuente said Monday.

In January, Latam Airlines suspended service of its Boeing 787s following a directive from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration after the aircraft presented technical problems with its batteries.

The carrier, Latin America’s largest by market capitalization, is making the changes to the aircraft’s batteries, as suggested by Boeing and the FAA, Mr. De la Fuente said.

“Starting in June, we expect these airplanes will return to operations,” Mr. De la Fuente said during Latam Airlines’s annual shareholders meeting.
