(MENAFN - Morocco World News) Rabat - Royal Air Maroc (RAM), the Moroccan national carrier, recorded a remarkable growth in air traffic during the last weekend of July (29-30), the company announced Friday in a press release.
The Moroccan airline carried approximately 57,739 passengers in 517 round-trip flights over the last weekend. The company said this growth was accelerated by the number of passengers who took off from Casablanca's Mohammed VI airport: 42,726 passengers flew in 350 round-trip flights, representing 74 percent of the total traffic.
"Despite this record in traffic, the arrangements put in place and the continuous mobilization of Royal Air Maroc teams had helped to minimize the inconvenience caused by the strong pressure on the company's resources," said Abdelhamid Addou, Chairman and CEO of Royal Air Maroc.
"The airline's teams have made great efforts to manage the flights, ensure a good punctuality rate and allow passengers to travel in the best possible conditions," Addou added.
The statement explained that the company has strengthened its staff in stopovers to provide its passengers with special attention, assistance, and guidance.
