Royal Air Maroc entered a new era with the delivery of its first Airbus aircraft in Hamburg, an A321, thus joining the European manufacturer’s worldwide customer base of some 200 customers and operators.
The aircraft is the first of four single-aisle A321, firmly ordered by the Moroccan national carrier from Airbus in June 2001. The second A321 will be delivered to Royal Air Maroc in a few weeks. All aircraft will be powered by CFM56-5B engines from CFM International.
Royal Air Maroc will use the A321 on its medium haul high-density routes such as Casablanca-Paris.
The A321, the largest member of Airbus’s A320 family, is the preferred aircraft of airlines with a strong customer base of tourist travellers.
In the spacious layout selected by Royal Air Maroc, the A321 will seat 177 passengers and up to 198 in high season.
