The Irish low-cost carrier said the Boeing 737 MAX is a “Gamechanger” with more legroom and bright new interiors. It will replace its 737-800s and it currently has 135 on order.

Ryanair will operate 154 routes in total over the winter from Stansted, London Luton Airport, London Southend Airport and Gatwick Airport.

This includes two new routes from Luton to Krakow and from Southend to Venice Treviso, which it said will help deliver 26 million customers per annum Ryanair’s four London bases this year, as it grows its traffic by five per cent.
