Ryanair takes delivery of the 450th Next-Generation Boeing 737-800

Ryanair's 450th Boeing 737-800

Ryanair and Boeing on March 20, 2017 celebrated the delivery of the airline’s 450th Next-Generation 737-800. This significant milestone has been reached in less than two decades, with the Irish low-cost carrier taking an average delivery of 25 737-800s per year since 1999.

With more than 80 unfilled orders for Next-Generation 737-800s, Ryanair is also the launch customer for the 737 MAX 200, with 100 unfilled orders. The 737 MAX 200 can accommodate up to 200 seats, increasing revenue potential and providing airlines with up to 20 percent better fuel efficiency per seat than today’s most efficient single-aisle airplanes.

Ryanair carried 119 million passengers last year with 1,800 daily flights to more than 200 destinations. The Dublin based carrier is the largest 737-800 customer in the world and the largest Boeing operator in Europe.

The pictured EI-FZF arrived at the Dublin base on March 21, 2017 after a nonstop flight from the Seattle area. EI-FZF does not carry any special markings.
