The CEO of Royal Air Maroc considers the awards a source of pride.
Rabat – Morocco’s flag carrier Royal Air Maroc (RAM) has won two awards at the 51st annual meeting of the Association of African Airlines (AFRAA) in Mauritius.
Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) reported that the company won two awards as the best company in two categories, “Global Operations” and “Best Improved financial results.”
The staff at Royal Air Maroc are pleased with the symbol of international recognition.
CEO of RAM Hamid Addou said, “We are extremely proud of this international recognition, especially as the jury is made up of professionals from the air transport sectors.”
Such recognition is encouraging the company to “redouble” its efforts to “achieve a single African air transport market that will make it possible to remove barriers of protectionism in order to achieve a growth in air traffic on our continent, driven mainly by African airlines and in the interests of the economies of our countries and our fellow citizens,” he added.
The annual AFRAA meeting convened experts from the air transport sectors from African airlines from November 10-12.
The meeting was held under the theme “Success in an integrated and interconnected Africa.” During the meeting, experts in the field discussed challenges related to air transport in Africa.
Founded in 1967 in Accra, Ghana, AFRAA has its headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya. It seeks to establish collaboration and partnership among African airlines.
It also lobbies for “market access to increase revenues and enhance connectivity for the aviation sector in Africa” and to promote the “industry best practices to support safe, secure and reliable air transport” in the continent.
