Morocco’s flag carrier Royal Air Maroc has placed an order for two 787 Dreamliners to add to the airline’s growing widebody fleet.
Royal Air Maroc, which currently operates nine Dreamliners, leverages the 787 family’s efficiency and flexibility to expand its long-haul network.
Abdelhamid Addou, chairman and chief executive of Royal Air Maroc, said: “The two Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners will enable Royal Air Maroc to expand in the short-term its long-haul network in response to the highly favourable market conditions in 2023.
“Simultaneously, the company is actively pursuing a significant tender to quadruple the fleet before 2037.”
Royal Air Maroc has added to its widebody airplane count with a mix of 787-8s and 787-9s over the last nine years. This order was previously unidentified on Boeing’s Orders & Deliveries website.
Brad McMullen, Boeing senior vice president of commercial sales and marketing, said: “The 787 Dreamliner is perfectly suited to support Royal Air Maroc’s growth and modernisation plans.
“Boeing’s relationship with the airline spans more than five decades, and we look forward to more opportunities to strengthen our partnership with Royal Air Maroc.”
Royal Air Maroc is a member of the oneworld Alliance and flies to 82 destinations in 41 territories around the world, including frequent departures to the biggest capitals in Europe, Africa, North America and the Middle East.
The airline’s fleet of Boeing airplanes includes 737s, in addition to 787s.
