Morocco’s Flag Carrier Rolls Out Special Measures for Summer 2024

 

Morocco’s flag carrier, Royal Air Maroc (RAM) has rolled out a special program for the 2024 summer season to meet an expected sharp increase in demand.

The special program includes the introduction of over 6.5 million seats to more than 90 destinations across four continents, an increase of more than 300,000 seats compared with the 2023 summer season, RAM said in press release on Thursday.

The national airline will also launch six new international lines and two cross-border domestic destinations. 

This offer is designed to meet the strong demand from Moroccans around the world, due to the massive number of trips they make to their homeland during summer vacation.

RAM’s Chairman and CEO Abdelhamid Addou stated: “The system we’ll be putting in place will guarantee greater operational efficiency and broader coverage to our main markets while offering Moroccans around the world a smooth return home.”

He added that RAM has mobilized significant technical and human resources to implement this program, and to ensure a better quality of service and customer satisfaction.

Almost half of the seats, over 3.2 million, will be deployed across the European continent, with 671 weekly flights connecting 37 European destinations to 11 Moroccan airports. Royal Air Maroc’s offer in this market will thus be 10% higher than the same period last year.

Royal Air Maroc has 533,586 tickets to sell in North America correlating to a 13% expansion; in the Middle East, there will be 282,361 seats available. 

The Moroccan carrier will also strengthen its offer to the African continent, providing passengers with more than 1.3 million seats (up 19%) linking Moroccan airports to 28 international African destinations, with 271 flights per week. 

This new seat capacity consolidates Casablanca’s position as a regional hub for RAM and a pivotal connection between Europe and Africa.

In response to high demand from Moroccans residing in the Netherlands over the summer, Royal Air Maroc will launch three additional direct routes from the Dutch capital Rotterdam to the Moroccan cities of Tangier, Oujda, and Nador.

In addition, three additional routes will connect Casablanca with Abuja in Nigeria, Manchester in the UK, and Naples in Italy. 

The carrier doubles the frequency of certain routes from Casablanca, namely Laayoune, Dakhla, and Oujda, as well as the opening of two new transverse routes linking Rabat to Errachidia and Laayoune.

Royal Air Maroc will be chartering seven aircraft from internationally renowned airlines. These aircraft will be based at Tangier, Nador, and Oujda airports, and Casablanca will host four aircraft, including one for long-haul flights.
