Ryanair orders five 737NGs

Ryanair has finalised an order for five additional 737NGs, valued at $452 million at list prices. This announcement brings the total number of unfilled Next-Generation 737 orders for the Ireland-based ultra-low-cost carrier to 180 airplanes.

“The 737-800 is the perfect airplane for us as we continue to expand our fleet to cater to both business passengers and tourists who want to visit and explore Europe at affordable, reliable rates,” said Michael O’Leary, director and CEO of Ryanair. “The addition of these highly efficient airplanes will help provide our customers with additional options when it comes to planning their travel.”

The airline announced last year an order for 175 of the airplanes. Ryanair is the world’s largest 737-800 customer, with orders placed for 528 of the type to date.

“Ryanair and Boeing share a rich history together. The 737-800 offers strong operating economics and will provide comfort and reliability to Ryanair passengers,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner. “We are honored to be chosen by Ryanair as they expand their fleet and look forward to continuing our partnership for decades to come.”
