Ryanair Holdings Plc will have 99 Boeing 737 Max aircraft by the end of March as the US manufacturer works its way through a backlog of orders.

Ryanair Chief Executive Officer Eddie Wilson said the Irish carrier was in a better position than expected, with greater clarity surrounding the delivery of the aircraft. 

“We don’t expect any disruption to schedules because of their deliveries,” Wilson said in an interview on Tuesday.

The airline had previously described Boeing Co.’s delay in fulfilling orders as “the only dark cloud” on the horizon and said a failure to deliver 51 jets by the end of June 2023 would force a reduction in capacity growth.

Ryanair announced its Dublin summer schedule today, which will see 33 aircraft based out of the Irish capital.

Wilson told reporters that the delivery of the aircraft from Boeing had “improved dramatically.” 

“They’ve better processes now, I think, in terms of finishing the aircraft,” he said. 

Ryanair’s summer service from Dublin will be its largest ever, delivering 10% traffic growth over last year, the carrier said. Wilson said an increase in passenger charges, which the airport’s operator is seeking, and the ending of post-pandemic Irish government support could mean it would expand in other countries at the expense of Ireland next year.

Kenny Jacobs, the chief executive of airport operator DAA, said at the launch of the summer schedule that he was seeking a modest increase in passenger charges. Dublin would remain a “low-cost” airport, he said.
