Milan Bergamo Airport received the new and revolutionary Boeing 737-8200 aircraft, together with its air partner, Ryanair. Labeled as an aircraft "gamechanger", the ultra-low-cost Irish carrier will introduce its first aircraft from the new fleet at Milan airport on July 20.

At a conference with Ryanair CEO Eddie Wilson and Giacomo Cattaneo, Director of Commercial Aviation, SACBO, the two said that: "We recognize the significance of the arrival of the new Ryanair aircraft, the first of its kind, not only in Milan Bergamo, but also in Italy. Before the end of the summer season, we expect up to 5 737-8200 aircraft to be at the base of the airline at Milan Bergamo Airport and another 5 aircraft to be received by mid-2022, progressively replacing Boeing 737-800 aircraft. ”
Cattaneo added that "Ryanair's growing fleet, lower fares and greener flights will be key to reviving the local economy, boosting tourism to the region and providing greater connectivity for Italian passengers."
