The Ryanair Group has ordered up to 300 B737 Max 10s from the US aircraft manufacturer, which are to be delivered from 2027. The order is divided into 150 firm orders and options for 150 additional copies.
According to Ryanair, the value of the order according to list prices is around 40 billion US dollars. In the run-up, negotiations were longer and the low-cost airline had even broken off the talks because they could not agree on the price with the Americans. Only a few weeks ago it became known that the negotiations had been resumed.
According to the current state of affairs, the last Boeing 737-Max-10 from the current order is to be handed over to the state-owned company in 2033. It is not yet clear how many machines will go to which flight operations (Ryanair DAC, Ryanair UK, Buzz, Malta Air and Lauda Europe). At the same time, the Max-10 will also be the largest model in the group fleet, as it has 230 seats and thus has a higher capacity than the Boeing 737-800, 737-Max-200 and Airbus A320 currently in use.
“The Boeing-Ryanair partnership is one of the most productive in commercial aviation history, enabling both companies to thrive and bringing visible travel to hundreds of millions of people. Almost a quarter century after our company signed the first direct purchase of aircraft, this landmark agreement WILL continue to strengthen. We are committed to delivering for Ryanair and helping Europe’s largest airline group achieve its goals by offering its customers the lowest fares in Europe, » said Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun.
CEO Michael O’Leary emphasizes that the B737-Max-10 can carry around 21 percent more passengers in direct comparison with the B737-800, which currently dominates the fleet. There will be around two years between the last delivery of the B737 Max 200 order and the first takeover of the larger Max 10. In return, the outdated Boeing 737-800s are to be gradually phased out. The leasing contracts for the Airbus A320, which are operated by Lauda Europe, were only extended by a few years last year. The question WILL then arise as to whether the carrier WILL expand these again, for example procuring an A320neo or switching to Boeing 737-Max. A merger with Malta Air, which resides in the same office building, is not out of the question either.
