Moroccan national carrier Royal Air Maroc (RAM) will start the first-ever Miami-Casablanca route on 3 April, 2019 and the only direct link from Miami to Africa.
The new three-weekly connection will give Miami International Airport its first passenger flights to Africa since the year 2000 and Florida’s only non-stop service to the continent.
The route will be operated with new-generation Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft configured to accommodate 18 business class and 255 economy class passengers.
Miami-Dade aviation director, Lester Sola said: “Royal Air Maroc’s announcement is a major milestone in the 90-year history of Miami International Airport.
“We have long sought to re-establish nonstop passenger service to Africa, and to accomplish that with an airline and a destination of this caliber is an added bonus.”
RAM has a fleet of 55 aircraft and more than 90 destinations with regular frequencies, and connects Morocco to five continents.
