Ryanair firms options on 25 737 Max 8s

Ryanair has agreed to buy a further 25 Boeing 737 MAX planes, worth $3 billion at list prices, lifting its order of the USA planemaker's flagship short-haul plane model to 135, the two companies said on Tuesday.

The USD3 billion order, at current list prices, was previously listed as unidentified on Boeing's Orders & Deliveries website.

The Irish low-priced carrier, which is the largest operator of Boeing planes in Europe, purchased 100 737 MAX planes in 2014 and took out options on 100 more. "We look forward to taking delivery of our first Gamechanger in Spring 2019".

Ryanair had ordered 100 firm 737 Max 8s in 2014 - along with 100 options - and subsequently ordered a further 10 during last year's Paris air show, although it retained its 100 options. The airplane will provide Ryanair with 197 seats, increasing revenue potential and delivering up to 14% lower fuel consumption than today's Next-Generation 737s.

United Airlines announced yesterday that it has taken delivery of its first 737 MAX 9 aircraft from the Boeing Delivery Center in Seattle, Wash.

Ryanair, which now operates around 430 Boeing 737 planes, says the MAX order will allow it reach its target of carrying 200 million passengers per year by 2024.

The Dublin-based carrier is the largest 737-800 customer in the world and the largest Boeing operator in Europe. It takes the airline's 737 orders to more than 650.

The Boeing 737 MAX 9 features 179 seats in a three-class layout, with access to in-seat power outlets and satellite Wi-Fi.

The 737 MAX is the fastest-selling airplane in Boeing history, accumulating nearly 4,500 orders from 96 customers worldwide.
