Boeing Delivers Ryanair's 300th 737-800

First Of 37 To Be Delivered In 2011

Boeing has delivered the 300th Next Generation 737-800 to Europe's largest low-fare carrier, Ryanair. The airline will take delivery of a total of 37 of these aircraft during 2011 and is the world's largest operator of the 737-800. Ryanair took delivery of its first 737-800, which seats 189 passengers, from Boeing in 1999. 

Ryanair's Chief Executive Michael O'Leary said, "We are proud to take delivery of our 300th brand new Boeing 737 aircraft. The total value of the Ryanair fleet is now over $18 billion. We are proud to operate the youngest, greenest and most fuel-efficient fleet of any major European airline. This aircraft will help us to grow to 78 million passengers this year as we continue to lower fares and guarantee no fuel surcharges, which is why so many passengers are switching to Ryanair – the world's favorite airline."

"The milestone delivery of this 737-800 to Ryanair is a tribute to the 737 and the strength and sustainability of Ryanair's business model," said Marlin Dailey, vice president of Sales & Marketing for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The 737 offers an unbeatable combination of economics that will continue to give Ryanair a competitive advantage in the marketplace."
