On 30 August 2018, Miami International Airport confirmed that Royal Air Maroc plans to commence a three times weekly Casablanca-Miami service with Boeing 787-8 equipment from 03 April 2019. This service will be the first passenger operation between Africa and Miami since 2000 and the only nonstop service between Africa and Florida.
Royal Air Maroc will operate three weekly roundtrip flights between Miami and its Casablanca hub, where it offers numerous connections to North African, West African, Middle Eastern, American and European destinations. The route will be operated with new-generation Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft, configured to accommodate 18 business class and 255 economy class passengers. This latest addition is part of Royal Air Maroc’s ambitious goal to become the leading airline in Africa. The Miami route is an addition to its extensive expansion into East Africa announced earlier in 2018, including Dar es Salaam, Harare, Kigali, and Maputo, and Khartoum.

Living and working in Morocco
Royal Air Maroc roles are based in Casablanca, Morocco’s largest city. With its vast European network, a commute home to visit family and friends is a possibility or simply choose to spend your days off in a melting pot of distinctive culture and modernity.
Casablanca is a beautiful port city and is the commercial hub of Western Morocco, bordering the Atlantic Ocean. A distinctive and unique mix of French-colonial design and traditional Moroccan style give the city a sense of European urban sophistication and this is the perfect base from which to explore two exciting continents; Africa and Europe.
The cost of accommodation in Morocco is relatively low, especially in comparison to Western Europe and North America. There are accommodation options to suit every budget and preference.
