Royal Air Maroc has ordered an additional ATR
72-600.

The new aircraft will expand the Moroccan
national flag-carrier’s total ATR 72-600 fleet to
six aircraft.

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.”

Royal Air Maroc was the launch customer for the
ATR -600 series and took delivery of their first ATR 72-600 in
2011.

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.”

In terms of market outlook, ATR believes that
Africa and the Middle East will require 350 turboprops in the next
20 years, to serve 300 new routes further developing regional
aviation.
