Ryanair to buy 175 planes to keep Ireland travelling

Ryanair has sealed a deal with Boeing to purchase 175 new 737-800s, a deal reportedly worth nearly $15.6 billion at current prices.

Ryanair will make use of the planes across Europe as its fleet extends to 400 aircraft, serving 100 million passengers per year.
