Royal Air Maroc has 22 international African destinations this week

Almost all of Royal Air Maroc’s international operations across Africa use B737s, although B787s are used to Dakar and Bamako.

Royal Air Maroc’s international Africa network from its Casablanca hub comprises 22 destinations across 21 countries this week.

With nine weekly flights, Abidjan is its only destination with more than a once-daily offering.  Banjul, Bamako, and Nouakchott follow, each daily.

Almost all flights are by B737-800s or B737-700s, although 302-seat B787-9s make an appearance to Dakar (on all four services) and Bamako (on one of its seven).

Royal Air Maroc has 82 weekly flights to these 22 destinations, still down by over half over the same week in pre-coronavirus 2020.  However, several destinations see frequency increases in the coming weeks.

While some routes, including Banjul and Nouakchott, are at the same frequency YOY, most have obviously reduced. Indeed, the network carrier’s average frequency has reduced from eight to four. 

Many routes have flights down by 60%+.  Libreville, Accra, and Praia are especially badly hit, each down by 86% YOY.
