Royal Air Maroc (RAM) and the Israeli airline EL AL have signed a Memorandum of Cooperation aimed at governing their relations in order to offer the best services to their customers. In a statement released, the national company said that this agreement was signed by Hamid Addou, CEO of RAM and Avigal Soreq, CEO of El Al, on the sidelines of the 77th general assembly of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) recently held in Boston, which brought together hundreds of airline delegates and executives.
“This agreement comes in a context where Royal Air Maroc and El Al intend to operate air transport services between the two countries through their two respective hubs, namely the Mohammed V airport in Casablanca and the Ben Gurion international airport in Tel Aviv,” the statement added. The latter announces that the national company is preparing to launch, soon and as soon as general conditions allow, a direct air route between Casablanca and Tel Aviv.
“The signing of this memorandum of understanding will allow the two companies to explore the possibility of concluding a Codeshare partnership on the direct lines operated between the Kingdom of Morocco and Israel, as well as on the routes of their networks beyond their respective hubs,” the press release concludes.
