Royal Air Maroc introduce Harare, Maputo flights
Moroccan national carrier, Royal Air Maroc (RAM), has announced plans to launch flights to five other East African cities only two years after it began its Casablanca-Nairobi operations.
Country manager Othman Baba said the move, inspired by Nairobi experience, is part of RAM's efforts to claw back a share of the intra-African aviation transport which is currently controlled by foreign interests.
RAM which joined the 23-member single African air transport market (SAAM) last year, has said it will ride on the continental aviation framework, to speed up regulatory approvals. It is so far the only North African airline that runs a direct Nairobi - Ndjamena (Chad) flight.
"We will be extending operations in East Africa in in the short-term with new destinations like Dar es Salaam, Harare, Kigali, Maputo and Khartoum," said Mr Baba as RAM celebrated its 33rd flight on Nairobi-Casablanca route on Thursday. Other airlines that currently fly to Maputo include LAM Mozambique and CR Aviation.
"With more than 30 destinations in West Africa, it is only natural that RAM has decided to spread into East Africa to sustain its African strategy and underscore Kenya as a regionals business hub and gateway."
The airline, which began its Kenyan foray with two weekly fights in 2016, has since adjusted its schedule to three fights a week.
RAM, together with Kenya Airways, Ethiopian, South African and Egypt air are collectively referred to as Africa's Big Five.
In a continent where state carriers have been blamed for exorbitant fares that drive Africans to foreign airlines, Air Maroc says its key success point remains its low ticket prices.
Mr Baba said RAM has over the years maintained strict control over its costs structure and processes, resulting in lower ticket price and cargo tariffs especially in the last 15 years.

Royal Air Maroc Purser Sends Moving Message to Women: Video
The purser told girls to ‘live their passions without limits’ passengers onboard a Royal Air Maroc (RAM) flight on March 8.
The chief flight attendant of a Royal Air Maroc (RAM) flight sent a heartfelt message to her passengers on the occasion of International Women’s Day, captured in a video shared widely on social media.
In her speech, she gave the passengers a glimpse into the struggles that women endure: “Us, women, we seldom speak up. We fight sometimes, to study, to work, and to become independent.” She added, “We never say that things aren’t going well, and we never say that we’re afraid of never reaching our objectives.”
For International Women’s Day, the flight attendant declared that what women really need aren’t material gifts, but in fact need a chance to speak up and be heard. “We only want to talk, raise our voices, and recognize the obstacles that make us believe we will never reach our dreams.”
At the end, she addressed little girls onboard, asking them to hold on to their dreams and ambitions, while highlighting her struggle in a society that frowns upon her job. “I was always to ‘No’: ‘no you can’t pursue this career,’ ‘a woman can’t travel all the time for a living,’ ‘a woman’s place is her house not an airplane,’
“But I have ignored these voices, and I followed my passion because I wanted to live my own dream.”
“I want all the little girls to dream of studying and working, and living their passions without limits. Don’t doubt your capacities: you’re strong, and you deserve a chance, don’t let it ever pass you by,” she concluded.

Moroccan airline, Royal Air Maroc, will start daily flights in the São Paulo-Casablanca route. The information was announced by Morocco’s ambassador in Brasília, Nabil Adghoghi. Currently, the frequency is four flights per week.
“It took forty years for the route New York-Casablanca to introduce daily flights. In only three years, the route São Paulo-Casablanca will have, in the next few weeks, a daily flight,” said the ambassador in the event organized by the Centre for Studies in Integration and Development (CINDES), by Morocco’s OCP Policy Center, by the Brazilian Center for International Relations (CEBRI) and by the National Federation of Industry (CNI).
The daily flight will allow for a greater flow of passengers both ways and will foster opportunities in tourism, according to Rubens Hannun, the president of the Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce, who also took part in the panel. “With this, we will have more tourists both ways, which contributes to the promotion of information and knowledge between the two cultures,” he said.
Adghoghi said all these aspects are covered in Morocco’s diplomatic strategy regarding Brazil. He recalled that diplomatic ties between the two countries will be 60 years old next year, and stressed that Brazil is one of the markets that the African country pays the most attention to.
According to the ambassador, the Arab Brazilian Chamber is being very helpful economically speaking. As cases in point, he mentioned the Brazilian delegation that travelled to the International Agriculture Show in Meknès, Morocco (Siam) last April and the assistance given to Moroccan executives who attended the São Paulo Supermarket Association Trade Show (Apas Show) a month later.

The ambassador also revealed that the Moroccan foreign minister should travel to Brazil in October or November to fast-track these deals and resume talks for the Mercosur-Morocco trade agreement, another key point to stronger bilateral ties.
“There is no way Morocco will turn its back on the Mercosur. Talks are moving forward, we are looking into the consequences. The foreign minister’s trip should kickstart technical negotiations leading to this bilateral agreement,” Adghoghi explained.

Royal Air Maroc introduces its 5th Boeing 787 Dreamliner. It can accommodate 274 passengers in 2 classes: 18 in Business Class and 256 in Economy. Royal Air Maroc states that the new aircraft is equipped with the latest generation engine, offering optimal performance with reduced fuel consumption compared to the conventional long-haul aircrafts. Cabin seats are all equipped with state-of-the-art touch screens for in-flight entertainment and with a varied selection list of films, documentaries, games and music. Business Class members will be able to turn their seats into a totally ‘flat bed’.
The future looks brighter than ever for Royal Air Maroc. Morocco and the EU have signed an open skies agreement in 2006, which means free passenger traffic among the African state and the EU countries. The number of competitors and low cost carriers already operating in the EU has made it tough for Royal Air Maroc to put themselves out there, however, their passenger traffic to and from the EU has increased exponentially ever since.
