Ryanair announced that it placed an order with Boeing for five new Next Generation 737-800 aircraft. The order is valued at $452 million at list prices.

This follows Ryanair’s order of 175 Next Generation 737-800 aircraft last year, and brings the airline’s total orders of 737-800 planes to 528 to date, including 180 unfilled orders.  The Irish carrier took delivery of its first 737-800 in 1999.

The order also brings the total number of 737 orders that Boeing has received from carriers worldwide to over 11,000.

The Boeing 737-800 is part of the 737 Next Generation family, which is made up of the -600, -700, -800, and -900 models of the aircraft.  It is the third generation of the 737 and has been produced since 1996.

The plane is also the highest-selling model in the Next Generation 737 family. The aircraft can be configured to seat 162 passengers in a two-class layout or up to 189 in one class.

Ryanair, which is based in Dublin, operates more than 1,600 flights daily to 186 destinations in 30 countries.
