November 10, 2017: Morocco's state owned carrier, Royal Air Maroc has launched a new twice-weekly freighter service from Frankfurt Airport to Casablanca. Since early November, the airline has been operating a B737-F from Frankfurt to Casablanca twice a week, on Thursdays and Saturdays. In the first quarter of 2018, the airline intends to switch over to a B767-F, thus significantly increasing its capacity.
Over the next couple of years, the airline also plans to deploy two more freighter aircraft from Frankfurt Airport. The airlines’ cargo division currently transports around 25,000 metric tonnes of freight every year. The airline’s passenger division has been flying from Frankfurt for many years.
Felix Kreutel, SVP Cargo at Fraport AG, said, “Royal Air Maroc’s extensive network of routes to Africa and South America opens up new and interesting connections to these markets for our customers. The South American market is currently experiencing above-average growth, after a period of prolonged recession. Royal Air Maroc offers us the opportunity to participate in this growth.”
