Ryanair PLC (LON:RYA) said it expects Boeing’s 737 MAX aircraft to return to operations in the US in the next month or so.
The low-cost carrier would then start receiving them early next year.
The Federal Aviation Administration published a report on revised training procedures for the aircraft.
“The first of those (orders) we would hope to arrive in very early 2021,” chief executive Eddie Wilson said to Ireland’s Newstalk radio station.
“The FAA finished their test flights last week and it looks like it’s going to go back into service in the US in the next month or so. EASA, the European agency, are working very closely.”
