Royal Air Maroc receives its first Boeing 737 MAX 8


Renton - On December 22, Boeing delivered the first 737 MAX 8 to Royal Air Maroc (RAM). Last week, the airline also received its first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.

Royal Air Maroc plans to operate its 737 MAX 8 between its base Casablanca and Accra (Ghana), Lagos (Nigeria), London-Heathrow (UK), Bologna (Italy) and Paris (Orly and Roissy-Charles de Gaulle).

The Moroccan national carrier will take delivery of three 737 MAX-8 and three 787-9 more in the first months of the next year as part of its network expansion and fleet renewal plan.

These 737 MAX 8s will join a single-aisle that mostly consists of Boeing 737 NGs already owned by Royal Air Maroc. Equipped with CFM International's LEAP-1B engines, the 737 MAX 8 is more efficient than its predecessor.

Thanks to its new generation engines and improved aerodynamics, the MAX 8 can travel 600 nautical miles more than the current 737NGs while consuming 14% less fuel. Furthermore, the revamped single-aisle can accommodate up to 178 passengers in a standard two-class configuration.

The 737 MAX is the fastest-selling aircraft in Boeing's history, with approximately 4,800 orders placed by more than 100 customers worldwide.
