Ryanair Announces Purchase of 75 Boeing 737 Max Jets

The troubled Boeing 737 Max received a strong vote of confidence Thursday with the announcement by low-cost European carrier Ryanair that it would purchase 75 of the planes which had been grounded since early last year.

“We’re very proud of this aircraft. I don’t care whether they call it the Boeing Max, they call it the Boeing 737-8200, we call it the game changer, what you call it. All I know is our customers are going to love flying on this plane. This is the most scrutinized, most audited aircraft in history. It’s also going to be one of the safest aircraft that’s ever been delivered. What’s not often understood about the Boeing Max is it’s already accomplished over 840,000 flight hours. It’s been flying for 22 months, from May 2017 to March 2019 — 46 million people have already flown in the Max aircraft and loved it. It’s a great product. It’s a great aircraft. You know, we’ve got to look forward with great confidence, vaccines are coming in the first quarter of next year. There is going to be a very strong recovery here. And we need more aircraft in Ryanair if we’re going to lead that recovery in Europe.” “We will never forget the accidents that put us in the place that we were, ever. We have reinstilled, reinvigorated use any word you like, everything that has anything to do with safety across our company.”
