Oneworld and the thirteen companies which join it voted the date of end of March 2020 for the official integration of Royal Air Maroc in this Air alliance, announces the company in a press release.
With this vote, the members of this airline alliance approved the assessment of the projects undertaken by the national airline since December 2018, the date on which it had been invited to join this Alliance.
Throughout this period, Royal Air Maroc said that it had launched several projects for the consistency of all its systems in accordance with the specifications of Oneworld.
The integration of this Alliance, continues the national company, will allow it to extend its network and its destinations by adding lines operated by its allies via code-sharing agreements.
“The Royal Air Maroc network will ultimately be connected to several destinations around the world. The destinations and frequencies will increase significantly, and this interconnectivity will attract new customers on the national airline’s lines”.
The Alliance network has a total of 1,035 destinations in 164 territories. At the same time, this will provide a better customer journey thanks to optimized connections and end-to-end check-in operations, with Oneworld international assistance at airports in the Alliance network.
In addition, “membership in Oneworld will allow Royal Air Maroc to benefit from the processing of its flights at the airport terminals of member airlines in their respective hubs, and access to the lounges of member airlines offering a choice of more than 650 VIP lounges around the world”.
Royal Air Maroc is the first African airline to become a full member of Oneworld. Africa is the only continent where the Alliance has so far had no effective members. With its network of more than 100 destinations in 49 countries, RAM will allow Oneworld to add 34 new destinations and 21 countries to its map, bringing the Alliance network to 1,069 airports in 178 countries and territories.
