The airline currently operates the 787-8 and has three additional 787-9 aircraft on order.
“We are particularly pleased to receive today our airline’s first 787-9, which will soon be joined by three other models from the same family. The choice of this airplane forms part of our strategy to continuously expand and modernize our fleet, and comes just a few days after the announcement of the invitation made to Royal Air Maroc to join the highly prestigious Oneworld Alliance. This will further strengthen our country’s and Royal Air Maroc’s leadership position on the continent,” says Abdelhamid Addou, CEO and Chairman of Royal Air Maroc.
This aircraft offers a longer range and about 30 extra seats for passengers. The new plane is already slated to fly on routes from Casablanca to Paris (Orly), to New York and to Sao Paulo.
