Casablanca based Royal Air Maroc has ordered 29 shipsets of Aviation Partners Boeing Blended Winglets for both retrofit and new aircraft deliveries. The carrier will upgrade 16 737-700′s and 737-800′s with Blended Winglet Technology.
The decision was motivated by a combination of reasons including block fuel savings of 5%, which will save the carrier over 100,000 gallons of fuel per year per aircraft. Royal Air Maroc serves 40 countries with over 1,200 flights per week.
