The Irish (I’m from Ireland!) low-cost carrier has received it’s 400th Boeing aircraft. It is a Boeing 737-800 registered EI-FRC. Ryanair is the largest 737-800 operator in the world. Ryanair has 130 more 737-800s to be delivered. It will also be the launch customer of the 737 MAX 200. Ryanair has 100 MAX 200s on order. It will have 200 seats and it will reduce fuel burn by 20% per seat. This is what the COO, Michael Hickey has to say:

“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,” said 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’.”

“A key factor in Ryanair’s continued success is the outstanding economics of the Next-Generation 737-800,” said Monty Oliver, vice president, European Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “This 400th 737 delivery is a special milestone for both our companies and we are honored that Ryanair continues to be an all-Boeing operator.”
