Higher, Faster, Farther: the Mark of the NG 737s
Royal Air Maroc has just received its newest 737-800. The
Morocco-based carrier continues to develop its routes to
destinations in Europe, Africa and the Middle East with the new
medium-range airplane. This delivery marks the first of 20
additional 737s the carrier will receive.
"These new 737s will allow us to increase capacity while
complementing the country's forecast for growth in tourism to the
region," said Mohamed Berrada, Royal Air Maroc chairman and chief
executive officer. "We are very pleased to operate the 737, one of
the most cost efficient and reliable airplanes in the market."
Morocco's flag-carrier operates scheduled passenger and cargo
services from Casablanca to points in Morocco, North and West
Africa, Europe and the Middle East, as well as New York. Royal Air
Maroc operates a fleet of 30 Boeing airplanes that include 737s,
757s, 767s and 747s.
"Providing reliable and durable products like the 737 will help
Royal Air Maroc exceed passenger expectations," said Doug

International Sales. "We look forward to being a part of the growth
of Royal Air Maroc."

In addition, the new 737's flight deck features the latest
liquid-crystal flat-panel displays and is designed to accommodate
new communications and flight management capabilities that promise
to reduce flight delays and enhance flight-crew efficiency.
