Morocco’s Flag Carrier, Royal Air Maroc (RAM), announced that 10 of its flights on Friday have been cancelled due to “social tensions.’’
RAM tweeted that the cancellations concern flights between Morocco’s largest airport Casablanca and several cities in France and Italy.
Tensions between RAM and its pilots have intensified since Monday, after the failure of reaching an agreement between the pilots association and RAM’s administration.
The association said in a statement on Friday that a “heavy social climate’’ prevails over the company, adding that it has “exacerbated by 20 months of sterile social dialogue.’’
On Tuesday, RAM Director Abdelhamid Addou criticised in a letter to the association in what he termed as “the absence of willingness to see the company developing,’’ stressing that organising a strike “will have devastating effect’’ on the company.
