Jordanian and Moroccan flag carriers, Royal Jordanian and Royal Air Maroc have announced orders for four and two Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, respectively.
Royal Jordanian already operates seven of the smaller 787-8 with a previous order for two 787-9 still outstanding for delivery. Today’s order announcement will bring the airline’s fleet of 787-9 to six total aircraft as it plans to “…expand and modernise its wide-body fleet.”
Royal Air Maroc’s long haul fleet consists solely of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner family, with five 787-8 and four 787-9 already in service. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Royal Air Maroc, Abdelhamid Addou, said in a statement that “The two Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners will enable Royal Air Maroc to expand in the short-term its long-haul network in response to the highly favourable market conditions in 2023,”
