Royal Air Maroc (RAM) has closed an order for 10 jets with Boeing and Embraer, TelQuel said, citing sources.
According to outlet, the national airline of Morocco would have acquired four new Boeing 787s (two 787-8 and two 787-9) in addition to four 737 MAX 8.
With Embraer, the agreement would involve two E190s, but TelQuel does not detail whether they are E1 or E2 family aircraft. The article’s description, however, comments on the configuration of the four E-Jets currently operated by RAM, with 96 seats in two classes.
In addition to the orders already closed, the Moroccan news website also states that the airline is in negotiations with Boeing for a second deal involving seven 737 MAX 8s and three Dreamliners.
Royal Air Maroc has recently outlined an expansion and modernization plan by 2027 and intends to quadruple its fleet by 2038. Today the airline operates 50 aircraft, most of which are 737-800s (28 planes), in addition to two MAX 8s, six ATR 72s, five 787-8s, four 787-9s and four E190s.
Deliveries of the aircraft are expected to take place between September 2023 and January 2024, which suggests that they may be second-hand models in some cases.
