Boeing [NYSE: BA] has announced it has delivered the first 787-9 Dreamliner for Morocco´s flag carrier Royal Air Maroc, introducing a second member of the super-efficient Dreamliner family to the airline´s fleet, the company said.
The new airplane offers more seats and more range, which will help Morocco´s flag carrier grow its international business.
With the longer-range 787-9, Royal Air Maroc will be able to accommodate about 30 additional passengers (for a total of 302) and fly several hundred miles farther (up to 7,635 nautical miles or 14,140 km). The airline plans to deploy the 787-9 on routes such as Casablanca to Paris (Orly), to New York and to Sao Paulo.
Boeing has supported the development of the kingdom´s aviation industry through partnerships such as a joint venture named MATIS Aerospace that specializes in producing wire bundles and wire harnesses for new airplanes.
