Rabat – Royal Air Maroc (RAM) and Etihad Airways have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the development of their Cargo activities on May 29, at the headquarters of the national company in Casablanca, RAM said in a statement.
The MoU declares a convergence of intent between the two companies to promote their trade cooperation, states the Moroccan company.
This partnership comes to reinforce the Moroccan carrier network and capacities, and to enable it to access new markets.
“The two companies’ networks are complementary, which will enable the development of commercial synergies,” according to the statement.
In this context, RAM Cargo will carry daily cargo from Abu Dhabi to the Americas via Casablanca’s International Airport.
The MoU was signed in the presence of Abdelhamid Addou, Chairman and CEO of Royal Air Maroc, David Kerr, Senior Vice President Cargo of Etihad Airways and Amine El Farissi, Cargo Manager of Royal Air Maroc.
Royal Air Maroc Cargo is the leader in air freight transport in Morocco and offers a freight transport service throughout the Royal Air Maroc network, around a hundred destinations, but also cargo flights that serve Europe daily and some African cities from the Casablanca hub.
Etihad Cargo, formerly Etihad Crystal Cargo, operates five Boeing B777F and five Airbus A330-200F. Etihad Cargo has previously operated a Boeing 747-8F and Boeing 747-400F, both leased from Atlas Air but operated in full Etihad Cargo colours.
The carrier refreshed its brand image in June 2012 dropping the “Crystal” part, with full Etihad Cargo title.
