Royal Air Maroc Orders Four GEnx-1B Engines to Power New Boeing 787 Order

Royal Air Maroc has placed an incremental order for four GEnx-1B engines to power their new Boeing 787 Dreamliner order.  This adds to the carrier’s current fleet of nine GEnx-powered Boeing 787-8 and 787-9 jets.

On Tuesday (November 14, 2023), from the Dubai Airshow, GE Aerospace announced that Royal Air Maroc has ordered four GEnx-1B to power their new Boeing 787 Dreamliner order.  This adds to the airline’s current fleet of nine GEnx-powered Boeing 787-8s and 787-9s.  The GEnx-1B powers two out of every three 787s in service, which during a typical mission saves 1.4 percent in fuel compared to the competition.  Like all GE Aerospace engines, the GEnx can operate on approved SAF blends available today.


In Tuesday’s announcement, Royal Air Maroc’s Chief Executive Officer, Abdelhamid Addou, said,


“This agreement is part of our continuing efforts to grow our fleet and expand our long-haul routes to North and South America, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Europe.  We welcome these new aircraft and engines into our growing Dreamliner fleet.” 


Also commenting on the incremental engine order, GE Aerospace Commercial Programs’ Vice President, Kathy MacKenzie, said,


“We are very pleased that the GEnx continues to be the engine of choice for RAM’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet.  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.”


Since entry into service in 2011, the GEnx engine Family has accumulated over 50 million flight hours.  The Family is the fastest-selling high-thrust engine in GE history with nearly 3,000 engines in service and on backlog, including spares.  GEnx engines use lightweight durable materials and advanced design processes to reduce weight, improve performance and lower maintenance, making them ideal for long-haul flying.


GE Aerospace is a world leader in the production of jet engines, components and systems for commercial and military aircraft, and operates a global service network to support these offerings.  The company and their joint ventures have an installed base of over 40,000 commercial and 26,000 military aircraft engines.


The carrier is the national flag carrier of Morocco and a member of the oneworld global alliance.  Royal Air Maroc currently offers service to 82 destinations in 41 countries and territories worldwide, including frequent departures to the biggest capitals in Europe, Africa, North America and the Middle East.
