Morocco’s Flag-carrier Orders 4 Genx-1b Engines for Its Dreamliner Planes

GE Aerospace announced this Tuesday an order from Royal Air Maroc (RAM) for 4 GEnx-1B engines to power their new order of Boeing 787 aircraft. This order adds to RAM’s current fleet of nine GEnx-powered Boeing 787-8 and 787-9 Dreamliners.

“We are very pleased that the GEnx continues to be the engine of choice for RAM’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet,” said Kathy MacKenzie, Vice President, GE Aerospace Commercial Programs.
“GE Aerospace and RAM have forged a strong relationship during the last few decades, and we look forward to strengthening our relationship for many more years”, added the GE official.

For his part, Abdelhamid Addou, RAM’s CEO, said : “we welcome these new aircraft and engines into our growing Dreamliner fleet” seeking to serve the Moroccan airline company long-haul routes to North and South America, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Europe.

The GEnx-1B engine powers two out of every three 787 aircraft in service. The engine also provides a 1.4% fuel burn savings for the typical 787 mission compared to its competition. The added fuel savings enables more than 2 million fewer pounds of CO2 per aircraft annually.

GEnx uses lightweight durable materials and advanced design processes to reduce weight, improve performance, and lower maintenance, making it the best engine choice for long-haul flights.
