DENVER - The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner landed at Denver International Airport Tuesday.
The first flight was a United Airlines flight from Houston.
The first international flight between DIA and Tokyo is scheduled for June 10.
Battery problems on planes owned by other airlines prompted the government to ground the planes for several months. Federal authorities cleared the planes to fly again on April 19.
United Continental Holdings Inc. has six 787s. United plans to use its 787s on routes from Houston to other U.S. cities this week.
Boeing never found the root cause of the smoldering batteries, but it has said that it believes its fix covers all possible causes.
