RyanAir Youngest Fleet In Europe?

Fri Dec 30, 2005 1:25 pm

Supprise to me!

Following the retirement of its older Boeing 737-200 series aircraft, Ryanair now operates a fleet of 94 brand new Boeing 737-800 aircraft with an average age of two years.

Chief executive Michael O'Leary said: "Our brand new Boeing 737-800 aircraft have 40% more seats, which means we can offer more and even lower fares that ever before."

To celebrate, Ryanair is giving away two million free seats on ryanair.com until midnight January 5.

Why is it a surprise?

Their first B737-800 was received in 1999 and all but 12 of them were delivered after 2001. 28 have been received this year.

Negative... the site does not list U2 as having any 732's active.

Positive...i was talking about Ryanair.

The airfleets.net fleet age thing lists Ryanair as having 8 B737-200's and 83 B737-800's and the average age is 4.4. Well take off the 8 B737-200's of average age 24.6 years as they have been retired, and add about 10 brand new B737-800's, and you get about 2 years average.
