RYANAIR ordered 300 Boeing 737 MAX 10 aircraft
On May 9, RYANAIR went shopping. He read in the stars that it was a good day to place an order for 300 Boeing 737 MAX 10 aircraft (150 firm and 150 options). They would be delivered between 2027 and 2033. According to the list price, this order is valued at 40 billion dollars.
Given the size and scope of the transaction, it will be subject to approval at RYANAIR's general meeting of shareholders on 14 September 2023.
The new fuel-efficient Boeing 737 MAX 10 aircraft can be configured in a 228-seat class (21% more than the Boeing 737 NG), and scheduled deliveries between 2027 and 2033 will enables Ryanair to create over 10.000 new jobs for pilots, cabin crew and engineers.
RYANAIR plans to increase the number of passengers carried from 170 million to 300 million by 2034. Ryanair expects 50% of these deliveries to replace older B737NG family aircraft.
This new order will enable Ryanair to deliver sustained growth in traffic and tourism at lower fares (and lower emissions per flight) in all European countries where the company operates.
