In a statement issued October 17, RAM said that its new direct flights between Casablanca and Miami will operate Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
RAM will launch the non-stop flight on April 3, 2019. All flights will use the Boeing 787-800 Dreamliner with 274 seats, including 18 in business class.
Flights departing from Casablanca are scheduled at 4:20 p.m. local time. Arrival in Miami is scheduled at 8:05 p.m. local time.
Departure from Miami is scheduled for 9:45 p.m. local time, while arrival is scheduled at 10:55 a.m. local time.
In August, Miami International Airport (MIA) quoted Miami-Dade Aviation Director Lester Sola, who commended Royal Air Maroc’s request to link Casablanca and Miami with a non-stop flight.
He said, “Royal Air Maroc’s announcement is a major milestone in the 90-year history of Miami International Airport. We have long sought to re-establish nonstop passenger service to Africa, and to accomplish that with an airline and a destination of this caliber is an added bonus.”
Royal Air Maroc submitted its request to the US Department of Transportation to get approval for its Miami-Casablanca offer on July 26.
In its recent statement, Royal Air Maroc also shared its interest in linking Africa to Central America through the “many connections” that Miami offers as a major hub.
RAM has also had direct flights linking Morocco with New York and Washington, D.C., for 40 years.
Created in 1957, RAM flies into more than 90 destinations with 55 airplanes.
