Ryanair has ordered three Next-Generation Boeing 737-800s.

The order is valued at $280 million at current list prices.

With this order the Irish low-cost carrier now has unfilled orders for 174 Next-Generation 737-800s and 100 737 MAX 200s.

"We are pleased to announce the purchase of three more Boeing Next-Generation 737-800 aircraft, which will be delivered in early 2016, bringing our total recent orders to 183 737-800s, in addition to further orders for up to 200 'gamechanger' Boeing 737 MAX 200 aircraft," said Michael O'Leary, CEO of Ryanair. "These Boeing aircraft orders will allow us to expand our fleet to over 520 aircraft and to increase our traffic to 160 million customers per annum by 2024, creating some 10,000 new positions for pilots, cabin crew and engineers, as we continue to grow tourism, routes and jobs across Europe."

 Ryanair operates the largest all-Boeing fleet in Europe with more than 300 737-800s in service and is the biggest customer for the airplane type, ordering more than 530 throughout its history.

The Dublin-based airline is also the launch customer for the newest member of the 737 MAX family of airplanes, the 737 MAX 200, finalizing an order for 100 airplanes last year, with options for 100 more.

Ryanair currently operates more than 1,600 flights daily from 72 bases, connecting 189 destinations in 30 countries. With a team of more than 9,700 people, the airline flew more than 86 million passengers in 2014.
