(Reuters) - Boeing (NYSE:BA) Co delivered its first 787 Dreamliner in more than a year on Wednesday after a lengthy halt, stemming from production problems, cost the U.S. planemaker at least $5 billion.

The restart in deliveries comes as a major relief for Boeing, which was struggling with the production of the wide-body jet for more than two years. It could also help the airline industry better tap this year's boom in travel demand.

Here is a timeline of the troubled 787 program since 2020:
