Ryanair is delighted to mark 12 months of the Boeing 737-8200 “Gamechanger” in Milan Bergamo, reaffirming its strong commitment to environmental sustainability and leading the sustainable aviation agenda in European aviation. This latest generation aircraft has saved Ryanair over 6,000 tonnes of fuel with a total CO2 savings of c. 20,000 tonnes from Bergamo in the past year. Ryanair’s 20 Bergamo based aircraft, 10 of which will be our most enviro efficient “Gamechanger” aircraft (4% more seats, burn 16% less fuel and create 40% less noise emissions), represent an investment of over $2bn, delivering over 100 routes including 9 new Summer routes, supporting 600 highly paid aviation jobs and over 9,5k indirect jobs at Bergamo Airport. Ryanair expect to transport 12.2m passengers to/from Bergamo for the fiscal year 2023 (1.6m more than pre pandemic period) to give Bergamo’s holiday makers an abundance of choice to top European destinations whilst also giving Lombardy’s tourism a much-needed boost after two challenging years.
