Moroccan flag-carrier Royal Air Maroc is to introduce a fleet of five Airbus A321s under an agreement with Latvian wet-lease specialist SmartLynx.

Under the long-term pact, the aircraft are being stationed at five RAM locations including Casablanca, Tangier, Fez, Nador and Oujda.

SmartLynx focuses on Airbus single-aisle jet operations, although RAM operates a fleet primarily based on Boeing types, among them 737-800s, Max 8s, and 787s.

“Along with the easing of worldwide travel restrictions and the steady increase in the volume of airlines resuming their scheduled passenger services, the important agreement comes as yet another welcome sign of recovery for the aviation and travel industries,” says SmartLynx.

It states that the pact was achieved with the support of its broker partner Avico.

Cirium fleets data indicates both CFM International CFM56-powered and International Aero Engines V2500-powered A321s from the SmartLynx fleet are being brought into RAM’s operation.
