Royal Air Maroc (RAM) plans to commence a service between Casablanca and Boston in June 2019 under the ‘Open Skies Air Transport Agreement‘. The flag carrier of Morocco has submitted an application to the US Department of Transportation (DOT) on January 4.

RAM intends to operate the service to Boston by Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. The airline’s existing US flights to New York and Washington are also served with Boeing 787s.

In addition, Royal Air Maroc currently operates a mixed fleet of Boeing 737 and 767 aircraft. In December 2018, the airline took delivery of its first Boeing 737 MAX 8 and its first 787-9 Dreamliner. ATR 72-600 turboprops and Embraer E190 jets are also part of the RAM’s fleet. The ATRs are operated on regional routes by Royal Air Maroc Express.

Royal Air Maroc flies to several destinations in Europe, Africa, North America, South America and the Middle East. A long-haul service between Casablanca and Miami is also planned to start in April 2019.

In December 2018, the airline announced that it will join the Oneworld airline alliance. The carrier is expected to be fully integrated into Oneworld by mid-2020. Royal Air Maroc will become the first African airline in the alliance and the 14th Oneworld member.
