Royal Air Maroc will request US Export-Import Bank support to cover its Boeing 737-800 deliveries, according to the export credit agency.

The carrier will seek Ex-Im support at a meeting scheduled for 5 February, says Ex-Im.

The airline is due to receive five 737-800s this year with deliveries in February, March, May, July and October, Flightglobal's Ascend Online database shows.

Separately, Royal Air Maroc has deferred delivery of its Boeing 787s until at least the end of 2014.

The Moroccan carrier placed its order in 2005 and was originally due to be one of the first recipients of the aircraft.
