Another African Airline Orders the Boeing 787 Dreamliner


Boeing's game-changing aircraft, the Boeing 787 has continued its order roll and popularity among airlines with the latest being the Royal Air Maroc, the Moroccan national carrier.

Boeing and Royal Air Maroc (RAM) yesterday, announced orders for 4 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, valued at $1.1 billion at list prices. The aircraft will enable RAM to expand its international service.

The north African airline which has already taken delivery of five of the smaller variant, the Boeing 787-8s, will grow its fleet of the fuel-efficient 787 family to a total of nine airplanes.

Royal Air Maroc currently flies its Boeing 787s on international routes from Casablanca to North America, South America, the Middle East and Europe.

Royal Air Maroc is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. Its fleet includes more than 56 Boeing airplanes, including 737s, 767-300ERs, 787s and 747-400.

The Casablanca-based carrier operates a domestic network throughout Morocco and serves more than 80 destinations across Africa, the Middle East, Europe, North America and South America.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a family of super-efficient airplanes with new passenger-pleasing features including large and electronically dimmable windows, large stow bins, modern LED lighting, higher humidity, lower cabin altitude, cleaner air and quieter engines.

It will be recalled that Ethiopian Airlines took delivery of Africa's first Boeing 787-9 on 27 October, 2017 becoming the first airline to operate the type in Africa.

The Boeing 787-9 is 20 feet (6 meters) longer than the Boeing 787-8 and can fly 290 passengers up to 14,140 kilometers in a typical two-class configuration.

The Boeing 787's unparalleled fuel efficiency and range flexibility enable carriers to profitably open new routes and optimize fleet and network performance.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
