Boeing has delivered the 300th 737-800 airliner to Dublin-based low cost carrier Ryanair. Ryanair has already assembled the world’s largest fleet of 737-800s, with 37 more to be delivered in 2011.

“We are proud to take delivery of our 300th brand new Boeing 737 aircraft,” said Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary. “The total value of the Ryanair fleet is now over $18 billion. We are proud to operate the youngest, greenest and most fuel-efficient fleet of any major European airline. This aircraft will help us to grow to 78 million passengers this year as we continue to lower fares and guarantee no fuel surcharges, which is why so many passengers are switching to Ryanair – the world’s favorite airline.”

“The milestone delivery of this 737-800 to Ryanair is a tribute to the 737 and the strength and sustainability of Ryanair’s business model,” said Marlin Dailey, vice president of Sales & Marketing for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “The 737 offers an unbeatable combination of economics that will continue to give Ryanair a competitive advantage in the marketplace.”
