Royal Air Maroc launched its first direct flight from Washington, D.C. to Casablanca this week, kicking off its new, thrice-weekly non-stop service from Washington Dulles International Airport to Casablanca.

The new itinerary marks the national airline of Morocco’s third destination in North America and second in the U.S., following New York and Montreal. The Washington D.C. and New York-to-Casablanca flights, which are operated with a new generation Boeing 787 Dreamliner, will increase the seats offered in the United States by more than 40 percent.

Royal Air Maroc's fleet of brand-new Boeing 787 Dreamliners feature 18 Business Class flat-bed seats and partitions with adjoining seats in a 2-2-2 layout, and 256 Economy Class seats in a 3-3-3 layout.  Ergonomic seats have been entirely redesigned to guarantee all customers more space and legroom. Casablanca is Royal Air Maroc’s global hub, offering connections to more than 90 cities across Morocco, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the Americas.
