LONDON – After many months of significant delays, Ryanair’s first Boeing 737 MAX is on its way from Boeing Field to its headquarters in Dublin, Ireland.

At the time of writing this article, EI-HEN is just over halfway across Canada and is set to arrive into Dublin in six hours time.

The delivery flight is operating under the callsign RYR82MO, with EI-HEN itself only three months old due to extensive testing before delivery.

This of course marks a significant milestone for Boeing because it will be the first 737-8200 delivery out of the many hundreds that Ryanair has on order.

210 737-8200s will be delivered to the Irish low-cost carrier over the next few years, totalling a list price of $22bn, meaning this is a significant order for the likes of Boeing to keep a hold on, especially after the 737 MAX crisis.

The difference between the 737MAX8 and the 737MAX200 is that the MAX200 can carry 200 passengers, compared to the 189 that a normal MAX8 can normally carry.

This is a developing story.
