Ryanair, Europe's largest low fares airline, today (Tuesday, 7th March 2006)
celebrated the arrival of its 100th Boeing 737-800 series aircraft. Ryanair now
has an all Boeing 737-800 series fleet with an average age of just 2 years
making Ryanair's fleet the youngest of any major airline in Europe.

Speaking today, Peter Sherrard, Ryanair's Head of Communications said:

        'Ryanair's 100 brand new Boeing 737-800 series aircraft will bring
        Europe's lowest fares and best customer service to over 40 M passengers
        across 22 countries in 2006.

        'In 2005, thanks to the reliability and efficiency of our next
        generation Boeing 737-800 fleet our customers enjoyed:

           •The lowest airfares in Europe
           •The fewest delays in Europe
           •The least number of cancellations in Europe

        'Ryanair's $7.5BN programme to replace our older Boeing 737-200 aircraft
        with the environmentally efficient Boeing 737-800 aircraft has also
        resulted in a:

          •50% reduction in CO2 emissions per seat
          •45% reduction in fuel burn per seat
          •45% reduction in noise emissions

        'Over the next 6 years Ryanair will receive a further 139 new Boeing
        737-800 aircraft, bringing the total fleet to 239 aircraft and enabling
        70M passengers p.a. to enjoy Europe's lowest fares'.
