(Reuters) – Budget airline Ryanair on Thursday ordered 75 additional Boeing 737 MAX jets with a catalogue value of $9 billion, throwing a commercial lifeline to the embattled U.S. planemaker after regulators lifted a 20-month safety ban.

The order from the Irish airline, Europe’s biggest low-cost carrier and one of Boeing’s most important customers, is the largest for the jet since 2018 before two fatal crashes led to its grounding.
