Royal Air Maroc to increase network

Royal Air Maroc announced plans to increase its network on the African continent (Liberian Observer, 28-Jan-2010). Its ‘African expansion plan’ includes Banjul (Gambia), Luanda (Angola) and Pointe Noire (Republic of Congo). Services to Bangui in the Central African Republic and to Luanda in Angola would commence in Mar-2010. The announcement comes three days before the Ministry of Transport’s and Royal Air Maroc’s International Colloquium and Airshow in Marrakech. One of the objectives is to discuss the development of regional services in Africa as an alternative to ground transport. More than 20 other countries will be represented at the event.
