Ryanair: negotiations with Airbus for A-321neo aircraft
They would enter in the Laudamotion fleet
Ryanair would be close to opening a negotiation table with Airbus to be able to order around 100 A-321neo. They would not, however, go into the Irish low-cost carrier fleet but would be destined to the subsidiary Laudamotion, which uses dated and mainly leased Airbus aircraft. The idea of the company led by CEO Micheal O'Leary, however, is to order 50 A-321neo and to optionate another 50 in the event that the Austrian airline should grow in terms of turnover and number of passengers carried. For Ryanair, however, the management is trying to find an agreement with Boeing to order the new B-737 MAX 10 if they were sold "at the right price", explained O'Leary in Brussels today adding that "at the moment there are not the conditions necessary to make this order".
