Ryanair Finalises 25 Boeing 737 Max 8s Order. The low-cost airline Ryanair is asking for another 25 Boeing 737 Max 8, assuming its general commitment with 135 of the twinjets reinvented.

Boeing had previously attributed the aircraft to an undisclosed customer.

Ryanair had ordered 100 firm 737 Max 8s in 2014, along with 100 options, and subsequently ordered another 10 during the air show last year in Paris, although it retained its 100 options.

But the last order of 25 represents the conversion of 25 of the operator's options. Ryanair says it will contain 75 options in the 737 Max as a result. The airline will receive its first Max in the spring of next year.

The new Ryanair deal for the 197-seat plane is worth USD 3 billion at catalog prices, says Boeing. Take the airline's 737 orders to more than 650. All 737 Max jets are powered by CFM International Leap-1B engines.
