CASABLANCA- Royal Air Maroc (AT), the Moroccan airline, is actively pursuing the acquisition of 150 aircraft valued at approximately $25 billion, as disclosed by the company’s CEO, Abdelhamid Addou, on Monday.
This strategic move aims to significantly expand the airline’s fleet from its current count of 50 aircraft to a total of 200. Looking at the airline’s fleet, the next order will likely be from Boeing, and we can expect mixed orders of 737 MAX and 787s.

The primary objective of this deal is to connect Morocco with the global community further, transforming Casablanca into a prominent tourist destination capable of accommodating a substantial influx of tourists.
