They may not be heavyweights in the world of aviation and for years one of them has been the butt of jokes about safety, but now they have linked arms. Last Thursday Morocco's flag carrier RAM and Russia's national flag carrier Aeroflot met in Moscow and signed a memorandum of understanding to consolidate cooperation in the aviation field.
During the signing ceremony, vice-director general of RAM, Abderrafie Zouiten, said that this agreement allows both companies to reinforce their presence in the field of air transport linking the countries of Eastern Europe, Africa, Latin America and Southern Europe.
He added that the Moroccan and Russian companies are distinguished by their quality of service, which enables them to face competition and attract new customers.
Morocco's Ambassador to Russia, Abdelkader Lachhab, said that this memorandum is part of the strengthening of cooperation and bilateral economic relations.

Finally came the important news - Lachhabe added that on Tuesday RAM launched an air route linking Moscow to Casablanca, and will operate three flights weekly. Now that is great news!
