SEATTLE, Mar. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Ryanair showcased
their strong partnership with a new, co-branded livery on the airline's most
recently delivered Next-Generation 737-800.

The airplane features the distinctive blue Boeing colors on the fuselage of
the airplane, while Ryanair's name is featured toward the rear of the
aircraft. On the tail is the recognizable golden harp logo found on every
Ryanair 737-800. The airplane is one of nearly 300 737-800s currently in
Ryanair's all-Boeing fleet.

"The 737-800 has been the foundation of our recent successful growth thanks to
its great engineering and phenomenal reliability," said Ryanair Chief
Executive Michael O'Leary.

In June 2013, the Irish airline ordered an additional 175 of the world's
best-selling single-aisle airplane. O'Leary said the newly ordered airplanes
will expand Ryanair's fleet to more than 400 737-800s and create more than
3,000 new jobs for pilots, cabin crew and engineers.

"Ryanair has been a loyal Boeing 737 customer for nearly 20 years, so this
blended livery is a great way to honor that longstanding partnership," said
Todd Nelp, vice president of European Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

Over the next five years, Ryanair expects to serve more than 110 million
passengers across Europe. "That will enable us to lower our costs and cut air
fares even further," said O'Leary.

Ryanair describes itself as Europe's favorite low fares airline, operating
more than 1,600 daily flights connecting 186 destinations in 30 countries.
