Boeing and Ryanair finalized a firm order for 175 Next-Generation 737-800 airplanes valued at $15.6bn at list prices. The order, originally announced as a commitment in March, is Boeing’s largest ever aircraft order from a European airline. Ryanair selected CFM56-7B engines to power these new aircraft.
