DUBLIN- Ryanair expects to take delivery of "somewhere close to 30" Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in time for its peak summer season, Chief Financial Officer Neil Sorahan said on Tuesday.

The EU Aviation Safety Agency said on Tuesday that the grounded MAX airliner would receive final clearance to resume flying in Europe next week. 

It will take a number of weeks more for the MAX 200 model ordered by Ryanair to be cleared to fly, Sorahan told an online Airfinance Journal conference.
