Ethiopian Airlines will continue to fly its fleet of Boeing 787 planes while an investigation looks into a fire on a parked, empty Dreamliner at London's Heathrow Airport, The Associated Press reports.

Tewolde Gebremariam told The Associated Press Saturday that there is "no flight safety issue" with the 787s and that Ethiopian Airlines, like other operators, has not made changes regarding the planes.

Tewolde said all of Ethiopian Air's flight schedules are operating normally.

The cause of the fire on the Ethiopian Airlines plane, which broke out Friday more than eight hours after it had landed in London, remained under investigation.

The airline was the first carrier to use the 787 in April after the fleet was grounded in January following two incidents with its lithium-ion batteries.
