Royal Air Maroc CEO confirms launch of tender for 200 aircraft

B1anconer0 /

Royal Air Maroc (RAM) has confirmed the launch of a tender for the procurement of up to 200 new aircraft.

The ambitious growth plans of Morocco’s flag carrier do not come as a surprise. Already in the summer of 2023 it became known that Royal Air Maroc was intending to quadruple its fleet (as of April 2024 it operates 52 aircraft) by the end of the decade.

The airline’s CEO, Abdelhamid Addou, finally announced, on April 18, 2024, that a request for proposals (RFP) to expand the fleet had been officially launched.

The terms of this initiative have not been made public, but it is assumed that it will include a mix of narrow and wide-body aircraft.

The growth of its national airline is strategic for Morocco, which hopes to underpin, this way, the continued growth of its tourism industry. In 2023 Morocco received a record 14.5 million visitors, a number that is expected to increase to 17.5 million in 2026 and to 26 million by 2030, the year when it will organize a FIFA World Cup together with Spain and Portugal.
