Royal Air Maroc Ramps Up for Summer 2024

DALLAS — In anticipation of a busy summer, Morocco’s national carrier is increasing capacity, launching additional routes, and adding new aircraft to its fleet. 

Royal Air Maroc (AT) will offer over 6.5 million seats to more than 90 destinations across four continents during the summer, an increase of 300,000 seats compared with 2023. 

The airline will expand its schedule on four continents. Its European network will significantly increase, with 3.2 million seats and 671 weekly flights. The carrier’s Middle East services will include 282 361 seats. AT will also scale up its operations to North America, offering 533 586 seats, an increase of 13%.

African Routes

The Casablanca (CAS)- based carrier will expand its services on the African continent. AT’s flights will connect Morocco to 28 African destinations, offering more than 1.3 million seats. This represents a 19% increase compared with 2023. 

New direct routes will be introduced to Tangier (TNG), Oujda (OUD), Nador (NDR), Abuja (ABV), Manchester (MAN), and Naples (NAP). Domestic routes will see doubled frequencies from CAS, and two new routes will open between Rabat (RBA), Errachidia (ERH), and Laayoune (EUN).

Fleet Expansion

To enable this expansion, AT will lease seven next-generation aircraft from various international carriers. These aircraft will be based on TNG, NDR, OUD, and CAS. They will allow AT to handle increased passenger numbers during the summer when Morocco traditionally sees more significant tourism flows. 

The aircraft will also enable AT to offer improved services to passengers. AT’s CEO, Mr. Hamid ADDOU, said these plans would ensure better service quality and an optimal customer experience.
