The aircraft will be delivered before the end of the year and will be configured in the same dual-class configuration as the airline’s current ATR fleet.

ATR’s chief executive officer Stefano Bortoli said: “Seeing the launch customer of the ATR -600 series place a repeat order is a real source of pride for us, as it validates the enduring quality of our product and proves that it is the ideal solution to the challenges of regional connectivity in Africa. Royal Air Maroc is selecting an aircraft that offers a 40% advantage in fuel burn, the lowest operating costs and a modern and comfortable cabin, therefore buying the best value in the market.”

Abdelhamid Addou, chairman and CEO of Royal Air Maroc said: “As we already are exploiting five ATRs, this  ATR 72-600 will be added to our fleet in a smooth way. The aircraft is operationally proven in Morocco and offers our passengers a comfortable cabin. It is a good aircraft to complement our single-aisle fleet, and it will enable us to adapt even better our domestic and regional market capacity, offering more flight options to our passengers.”
