After an anonymous source within Royal Air Maroc (RAM) told Reuters, Thursday, that Morocco’s national career has put on hold a deal to purchase two Boeing 737 MAX jets after the tragic Ethiopia plane crash, the company denied the report.

In an article published, Friday, RAM's director of external communications Hakim Challot told the British news agency that «the order to receive the two aircraft has never been canceled».

RAM was expected to receive the two 737 MAX aircrafts in June. Two of the same planes were grounded following the Ethiopia crash, which killed 157 people including two Moroccan nationals.

For the record, Boeing delivered Morocco’s first Boeing 737 MAX 8 plane on December 22, 2018.
