Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) have announced that the Moroccan national air carrier,  Royal Air Maroc will begin flying direct between Nairobi and Casablanca.

Known commonly as RAM, Morocco’s largest carrier completed their inaugural flight to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport this morning (31 March).

RAM is fully owned by the government of Morocco, and has its headquarters on the grounds of Casablanca-Anfa Airport. From its base at Mohammed V International Airport, the carrier operates a domestic network in Morocco, scheduled international flights to Africa, Asia, Europe, and North and South America, and occasional charter flights that include Hajj services.

We are excited today as we prepare to receive Royal Air Maroc's inaugural flight to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport…
