Royal Air Maroc is plannng a new season direct route service between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Casablanca Mohamed V (CMN) in Morocco, to begin in June 2019, according to Massport and airline officials.
The service will use a 787/8 Dreamliner, which features a two-class cabin with 18 Business Class fully lie-flat seats in a 2-2-2 configuration.
Royal Air Maroc President And CEO Hamid Addou said, “We are very excited to launch the Casablanca–Boston line operated by 787 Dreamliner aircraft. The year 2019 will be a turning point for Royal Air Maroc in the US as it will see the opening of two new routes: Casablanca–Boston and Casablanca–Miami, which add to the two existing routes: Casablanca–New York and Casablanca–Washington. This will strengthen our network in the US and bring the African continent closer to North America through our hub in Casablanca.”
Royal Air Maroc remains committed to expanding its North American footprint, while continuing to offer affordable fares and high-quality service to everyone, on board its brand-new Dreamliner transatlantic fleet, officials said.
Massport Acting CEO John Pranckevicius said, “the addition of nonstop service from Boston to Casablanca through Royal Air Maroc will be our first non-stop flight to mainland Africa. Connecting New England with the global economy is a key part of Massport’s mission. This new flight will provide new opportunities for social, education and economic development and make Morocco more conveniently accessible to Massachusetts residents and employers.”
