Boeing and Royal Air Maroc (RAM) have announced the firm-order agreement for four 787 Dreamliners with an option for one additional airplane.



The first 787 is scheduled for delivery in late 2008. Terms of the final agreement announced Tuesday were not disclosed.



The Memorandum of Understanding for the 787s was originally signed in July, 2005, by Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Alan Mulally.



Royal Air Maroc plans to use its 787s on service to North America and to open new Middle East and Africa routes.



Royal Air Maroc’s order for the 787 Dreamliner brings the total number of announced commitments for the airplane to 309 from 25 airlines worldwide, with 241 firm orders.


RAM serves more than 60 destinations in 30 countries in Europe, Africa, North America and the Middle East, operating more than 44,000 flights per year.
