SEATTLE, April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] and Ryanair have finalized an order for five additional Next-Generation 737s, valued at $452 million at list prices. Today's announcement brings the total number of unfilled Next-Generation 737 orders for the Ireland-based ultra-low-cost carrier to 180 airplanes.
EVERETT, Wash.—The Federal Aviation Administration said it accepted a request by Boeing Co. BA +0.32% to allow the new 777X version of its best-selling long-range jetliner to be approved under rules that grandfather the plane under the current model's certification.
The approval clears a major regulatory hurdle for the plane maker, likely significantly reducing the amount of changes Boeing will have to make to the jet to meet the latest aviation safety standards. Boeing plans to bring a slate of advanced technologies and new features to the 777X.
The FAA and its foreign counterparts grant certification and must sign off on new airplanes before they can carry passengers. Getting regulators to certify the 777X as an incremental upgrade is far simpler and less costly for Boeing than entirely recertifying the jet from nose to tail. Full recertification likely would have resulted in significantly more flight testing and extensive ground programs to verify that every aspect of the jet's design is up to the latest standards.
count is 55 deliveries.
