Ryanair today announced massive expansions plans. The company ordered 200 new Boeings 737-800 MAX which should help with even more flights all over Europe.

The contract is for 100 new airplanes and option for 100 more later. The total value of the new contract is incredible 22 billion US Dollars.

The plan of Ryanair’s CEO Michael O’Leary is to increase the amount of transported customers from actual 82 million per year to almost double 150 million yearly.

The brand new model Boeing 737-800 MAX offers 8 more seats than standard Boeing 737-800 used by Ryanair until now. The total capacity is 197 seats.

The new airplane also offers brand new Boeing Sky interior with Slimline seats which are much thinner and this increases the space for passengers.

Another benefit of the MAX model is brand new motor CFM LEAP-1B which decreases the consumption of fuel by 18% and it also lowers plane’s emissions by 40%.

All these features should help Ryanair’s to lower the cost per passenger and increase the revenue in order to reach their aim of 150 million transported passengers per year.

First new Boeings should be delivered at the beginning of 2019 with the last airplanes flying in 2023.

Ryanair currently operates around 300 airplanes.

This is certainly good news for all fans of low-cost traveling as we should be seeing more and more new routes and possibly also lower prices!
