Royal Air Maroc receives first Dreamliner


According to Aviation Tribune, Royal Air Maroc has taken delivery of its first 787 Dreamliner in Morocco.

The airline will be the first carrier in the Mediterranean region to operate the Dreamliner.

“The 787 will provide Royal Air Maroc with the capability to grow its longhaul network and significantly reduce operating costs, all while offering its customers an unmatched onboard experience,” said Van Rex Gallard, VicePresident of Sales for Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean at Boeing.

Passengers travelling on Royal Air Maroc’s 787 will experience larger, electronically dimmable windows and larger overhead luggage bins. During flight the Dreamliner is pressurised to a lower cabin altitude, has higher humidity levels, advanced air filtration and smoother-ride technology, to make the flying experience more comfortable and allow passengers to arrive at their destination more refreshed.

Royal Air Maroc’s current fleet includes nearly 50 Boeing aircraft, consisting predominantly of Next-Generation 737s, but also 767-300s, a 747-400 and now it first 787. The Casablanca-based carrier operates a domestic network throughout Morocco and serves more than 50 destinations across Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America.
