Ryanair could place a significant order for Boeing’s MAX 10 aircraft this year but only if the price is right as the airline is not under any time pressure, its chief financial officer said on Monday.
Ryanair is already the largest European customer for the MAX, with 210 firm orders of the MAX 200 model.

It has repeatedly said it is interested in a significant order of the MAX 10, which took off on its maiden flight in June.
“Maybe the back end of the year we will do something. Maybe not. It’s all predicated on price,” CFO Neil Sorahan told Reuters in an interview on the publication of the airline’s results for its April-June quarter.
“If the price is right, we’re interested but it’s a post FY26 time frame so we are under no time pressure there,” he said, referring to the airline’s financial year to March 31, 2026, when its current order ends.
In a presentation to investors Michael O’Leary said the MAX 10 was something the airline would “revisit with Boeing maybe towards the end of the year.”
