Atlas Blue, the new low-cost subsidiary of Royal Air Maroc (RAM), launched services last month using a Boeing 737-400 transferred from its parent. The Moroccan government and flag carrier RAM created Marrakesh-based Atlas Blue to offer competitive point-to-point leisure services between Morocco and key tourism markets. The single 737-400 is initially being used solely on charter services to France exclusively for travel firm Etapes Nouvelles, but the fleet will expand to six -400s from the winter season and the network enlarged to include Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and the UK.
