LE BOURGET, France -- Royal Air Maroc (RAM) is celebrating the delivery of two additional GEnx-1B-powered Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. The deliveries bring RAM's GEnx-powered B787 Dreamliners to nine aircraft.
The GEnx-powered Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners have aided in Royal Air Maroc's fleet growth and long-haul route expansions to new destinations, including Miami and Boston.
"GE Aviation is honored to be the engine of choice for RAM's growing Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet," said Chaker Chahrour, vice president and general manager of GE Aviation Global Sales and Marketing. "GE Aviation and RAM have forged a strong relationship during the last few decades, and we look forward to strengthening our relationship for many more years."
GE Aviation has sold more than 2,500 GEnx engines since its launched 15 years ago, solidifying the GEnx as the fastest selling high-thrust GE engine in history. With the most advanced technologies and materials, the GEnx has the highest reliability and utilization, lowest fuel burn and longest range capable of any engine available on the B787 aircraft. The highest pressure ratio compressor in commercial service today enables the best fuel efficiency in its thrust class, resulting in the GEnx engine powering the longest B787 routes. The GEnx's innovative lean burning twin-annular pre-swirl (TAPS) combustor dramatically reduces NOx and other regulated gases below today's regulatory limits and enhances durability. As the world's first commercial engine with both a carbon fiber composite front fan case and fan blades, the GEnx fan module is lighter in weight, corrosion resistant with less line maintenance and improved reliability, and is the quietest engine GE produces. These leading-edge technologies and engine architecture bring high operational reliability and result in a high utilization rate of GEnx-powered B787 aircraft for more flights per year and more revenue for airlines.
GEnx's revenue-sharing participants are IHI Corporation of Japan, GKN Aerospace Engine Systems of the UK, MTU of Germany, TechSpace Aero (Safran) of Belgium, Safran Aircraft Engines of France and Samsung Techwin of Korea.
Headquartered in Casablanca, Royal Air Maroc operates a young fleet of aircraft to more than 90 destinations in Europe, North America, South America, North Africa, Africa, and the Middle East. For more information, visit www.royalairmarcoc.com.
