Passengers Refuse to Board RAM Flight Leased from Infamous Spanish Company

By Ismail ElOuafiCasablanca- Eight passengers refused to board their scheduled flight from Casablanca to Brussels on Tuesday after they found out that Royal Air Maroc (RAM) leases the aircraft from Swift Air, the Spanish company whose plane crashed in the north of Mali during the first week of August, according to aeronautique.ma.The anticipated take off of the aircraft was delayed about one hour, when RAM decided to unload the baggage of the protesting passengers to allow the aircraft to depart towards its destination and prevent further delays. According to the same source, an RAM spokesman stated that “it is true that some passengers did not distinguish between the airline accident in the north of Mali and the fleet of planes leased by RAM from Swift Air.”He said that “Swift Air is a well known company working with international organizations that have everything certified” for safety.Following his statement, he confirmed that the agreement between RAM and the Spanish company will expire soon, and said RAM customers should have nothing to worry about.Edited by Elisabeth Myers© Morocco World News.
