The flag passenger carrier has so far acquired 23 'Dreamliner' aircraft from September, 2012 to January, 2017.
"One B787-8 aircraft will be delivered in July, 2017, two B787-8 aircraft in August, 2017 and the 27th B787-8 aircraft will be delivered in October, 2017," Sinha told the Rajya Sabha.
However, the minister observed that, since induction, the Dreamliner aircraft fleet has experienced "technical reliability" issues.
"These issues, however, do not affect the safety of the airplane due to the system design and in-built system redundancy," Sinha explained.
"Further, system improvements are incorporated as a part of reliability enhancement process and the glitches have significantly reduced."
