Royal Air Maroc (RAM) aims to quadruple its air fleet by 2037, while covering 100 new international destinations, said, on Monday in Casablanca, CEO of the national airline, Hamid Addou.
By 2037, the national operator aims to progressively strengthen its flight schedule, change dimension and focus more on fleet expansion and improving the customer experience, as well as opening medium-haul and long-haul routes on all four continents, stressed Addou at a press conference dedicated to the presentation of the airline’s new strategic vision and brand positioning.
RAM also aspires to increase the number of tourists to Morocco to 21 million a year, from 69 countries and four continents, by 2037, he added, noting that the company thus intends to become a global, customer-centric and more profitable carrier, a transcontinental North/South and East/West hub, a dedicated point-to-point tool and a transversal national network.
Looking ahead to 2027, the company plans to confirm the strategy it has adopted, promote controlled overall growth and significant fleet expansion, strengthen long-haul routes and launch point-to-point tourism, he added, welcoming Morocco’s co-hosting of the 2030 Football World Cup as a source of motivation to improve the national aviation ecosystem.
He added that RAM intends to build a transversal network linking the Kingdom’s 12 regions, with 46 routes and 173 frequencies.
Addou stressed the need to take into account the challenge of sustainable development and decarbonization, especially as international cooperation and global tourism are increasingly based on climate action. “RAM is still not ready, and no Moroccan airline is ready, but we need to start investing in it,” he said.
This will be achieved through the introduction of new-generation aircraft, the “Fuel Efficiency Program”, which aims to reduce the carbon footprint by 8%, and the “Sustainable Aviation Fuel” program, which is part of the Oneworld alliance commitments, he underlined.
