Boeing and Ryanair have celebrated the landmark delivery of the airline's 400th Next-Generation 737-800, of which the airline has the largest fleet in the world.
"The Boeing 737-800 aircraft, with its industry leading technical reliability and seating capacity, has been the foundation upon which our successful and safe growth has been built upon, since we took our first delivery in March 1999," noted Ryanair's chief operations officer, Michael Hickey. "We are delighted to be now taking delivery of our 400th 737-800, which includes the new Boeing Sky Interior and slimline seats, offering extra leg room and an enhanced customer experience, as part of our 'Always Getting Programme'."
Ryanair has more than 130 unfilled orders for Next-Generation 737-800s and is also the launch customer for the 737 MAX 200, the newest member of the 737 MAX family.
The Dublin-based carrier has ordered 100 737 MAX 200s, a variant based on the 737 MAX 8, that can accommodate up to 200 seats.
