Hi!

Royal Air Maroc is the national airline of the Kingdom of Marocco, a country in North Africa. Marocco used to be a colony of France, so mostly of their airline equipment was a scalled down from Air France. They used to operate the Caravelle III, 727-200's, 737-200's, 707-300/300B's, 747-200's, 747SP, 747-400 and now new generation 737's and I think A321.
They're quite popular in Europe and also in Africa, North America and Brazil.

No offense but...how can someone not know Royal Air Maroc is based/is the national carrier of Morocco? That blows my mind!

Once again...No offense!

Hi!

Did you see the age of the kid? Do you think with 13/15 years old you knew that? I think with that age I have to admit I realied a lot on older people. Is with answers like yours that we create more and more barriers with the younger generation, and this goes to aviation enthusiasts too! At least I want to give a fun time to DC-10 Levo, if he doesn't know why not help him!
Regards and next time think that you had that age too!!!

They operate a 767-300 to JFK daily (or almost daily).

They should have a total of 4 A321-200 for the high-volume european destinations. Better performance than the B737-900 offers, especially when it comes down to range.

Can anybody give some more info about their A321's?

I had a look at the census list of jetphotos, but nothing is listed over there... (or maybe they got A321's in the past 5 months, it's already 5 months ago that the census list is updates - I miss Bill Harms!!)

Relax CV990. Again I did not mean to offend anybody here. And by the way at 15 y/o I knew about Morocco and the national carrier.

I've heard of Morocco, I wanted to know where Royal Air Maroc come from.

I wouldn't have asked this question if their name was 'Royal Air Morocco'.

Question of language. Maroc is in French. By the way they also fly 6 x weekly non stop CMN-YUL (Montreal) with the B-767.

Hi!

Now that everybody is happy about Morocco let's celebrate!!!
Royal Air Maroc or RAM was one of the first airlines from arab world to fly to Lisbon after the revolution in 25th. April 1974, and I still remember seeing their Caravelles III and the 727-200. In our days now RAM is very active in Portugal flying regulary, mostly with their 737's but once a while they can come with some unusual equipment like F-27's from Royal Air Inter and the ATR42's! I personally like RAM, they have a good and reliable fleet! I wounder why they never opted for Airbus in the past and only the A321 now?
regards

Hi

Some info from the Airbus webside:

Royal Air Maroc ordered 4 A321-200 in June 2001.

Delivery of the first aircraft is scheduled for November 2003.
It will be on the assembly line this summer.

Hope this helps,

Ivo
