Morocco's national airline, Royal Air Maroc (RAM), has once again reiterated its commitment to its new vision, which aims to boost the airline's network through fleet expansion.

The airline's CEO, Abdelhamid Addou, underlined these points during a presentation to RAM's partners in Casablanca earlier this week.

This event focused mainly on the agreement signed by Royal Air Maroc and the Moroccan government last July, which aims to increase the number of RAM aircraft over the next 15 years. 

As explained in a statement from the airline, Royal Air Maroc plans to push ahead with its new development project in order to expand its fleet and international network, as well as to rapidly develop direct air routes.

Quoted by state media SNRTNews, the statement further underlines that the airline has also renewed its commitment and intention to develop as a "comprehensive and global airline".

During the meeting in Casablanca, Addou also presented the company's new institutional signatures under the hashtags #DimaAfrica and #MeetMorocco.

Royal Air Maroc said that these new institutional signatures are part of enhancing the airline's achievements, stressing that this will contribute to consolidating its position as a leading airline in Africa. The company also hopes that this new campaign will allow it to highlight its confidence in Africa's potential and its commitment to Morocco as a strategic partner for national sectoral plans.

In July, the airline signed a contract with the Moroccan government to increase the number of its aircraft from 50 to 200 over the next 15 years. Through this deal, Royal Air Maroc is also looking to boost its domestic flights by creating 46 new services.

The company's project is part of a 2023-2032 programme that aims to position Morocco among the world's leading tourist destinations. The Kingdom aims to attract 65 million tourists by 2037.
