Royal Air Maroc Opens Casablanca-Washington Air Link
The inaugural flight was launched on September 8 using the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the Moroccan airline said in a statement.
The Casablanca-Washington air route is the third long-haul flight launched by RAM in 2016 after Rio de Janeiro and Nairobi.
Washington will thus become the third North American destination served by RAM after New York and Montreal.
Departures from Casablanca to Washington are scheduled three times a week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
RAM has four Boeing 787 Dreamliners, a mid-size, wide-body airplane employing state-of-the art civil aviation technology, with a fifth plane scheduled to be received by the end of 2016.
Boeing 787 is designed to accommodate 273 passengers including 18 in the business class. It uses technologies that enable low fuel consumption, low carbon emissions and an enhanced noise insulation.
