The numerous steps taken by Royal Air Maroc (RAM) for a normal resumption of its activities, are struggling to bear fruit.
Even if for the time being, the national airline has obtained some facilities from the government, namely the postponement or abolition of social charges, tax relief, the postponement of bank deadlines, it is not yet managed to get the government subsidy for the recovery plan.
More than a month after several countries decided to close their airspaces due to covid-19, some 60 of its planes are still grounded.
In view of the global health crisis and the government’s indecisiveness, Royal Air Maroc should not return to normal activity levels for at least 24 months. As for the reopening of the borders, the probability is almost zero, probably impossible before September 2020.
