Ryanair today (19th March) signed an agreement with the Boeing to purchase 175 new next generation B737-800 aircraft. When finalised, the deal will be worth nearly $15.6 billion at current list prices, and will allow Ryanair to increase its fleet to more than 400 aircraft, serving more than 100 million passengers per year across Europe by the end of the delivery stream in 2018.
