Royal Air Maroc Expands Fleet with Repeat Order for Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners

Yesterday at Dubai Airshow, Boeing and Royal Air Maroc, the North African airline, confirmed a repeat order for two 787-9 Dreamliners, as part of their widebody fleet expansion. Currently, the airline operates nine Dreamliners and plans to use the efficiency and flexibility of the 787 family to extend its long-haul network.


Abdelhamid Addou, Chairman and CEO of Royal Air Maroc, stated that the addition of two Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners will allow the airline to expand its long-haul network in response to favorable market conditions in 2023. The company is also actively pursuing a significant tender to quadruple its fleet by 2037. Over the past nine years, Royal Air Maroc has increased its widebody airplane count with a mix of 787-8s and 787-9s. This order was previously unidentified on Boeing's Orders & Deliveries website.


Brad McMullen, Boeing's Senior Vice President of Commercial Sales and Marketing, commented that the 787 Dreamliner is ideally suited to support Royal Air Maroc's growth and modernization plans. He also mentioned the airline's relationship with Boeing, which has lasted for more than five decades and expressed his anticipation for future opportunities to strengthen their partnership. Royal Air Maroc, Morocco's national carrier and a member of the Oneworld Alliance, operates flights to 82 destinations in 41 territories worldwide, including frequent departures to major capitals in Europe, Africa, North America, and the Middle East. Its fleet of Boeing airplanes includes 737s, in addition to 787s.

Since its introduction in 2011, the 787 family has launched over 380 new nonstop routes globally and reduces fuel use and emissions by 25% compared to the airplanes it replaces. Passengers enjoy a better experience with the largest windows of any jet, air that is more humid and pressurized at a lower cabin altitude for greater comfort, large overhead bins, soothing LED lighting, and technology that senses and counters turbulence for a smoother ride.
