Ryanair Expects 737 MAX To Return To Service In The US 'In The Next Month Or So'
Ryanair expects Boeing's troubled 737 MAX aircraft to return to service in the United States in the next month or so, paving the way for the Irish low-cost carrier to start receiving planes in early 2021, a senior Ryanair executive has said.
On Tuesday October 6, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued a draft report on revised training procedures for the 737 MAX, which is a milestone to return the plane to service.
Hoping For First Order Arrivals Early Next Year
"The first of those [orders] we would hope to arrive in very early 2021. 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," Eddie Wilson, the chief executive of Ryanair's main airlines business, told Ireland's Newstalk radio station.
