Royal Air Maroc, one of Africa’s leading airlines is joining the Oneworld alliance in mid-2020. The airline is based in Morocco with its Mohammed V International Airport (CMN) home base in Casablanca, Morocco Its regional subsidiary, Royal Air Maroc Express, will join as a Oneworld affiliate member at the same time.
The airline will be the first Oneworld member in Africa and the first new member since 6 years. These are exciting news for Oneworld frequent fliers, as they will get access to more than 650 airport lounges worldwide.
Royal Air Maroc will add 34 new destinations and 21 countries to the Oneworld route map. This brings the alliance’s network to a whopping 1,069 airports in 178 countries and territories.
Royal Air Maroc carried 7.3 million passengers last year on a fleet of 55 aircraft. The airline’s network currently connects its Mohammed V International Airport (CMN) base in Casablanca, Morocco, with 94 destinations in 49 countries across Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and North and South America, including Oneworld hubs Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar (DOH); Heathrow Airport in London (LHR); Madrid-Barajas Adolfo Suarez Airport in Spain (MAD); Moscow Domodedovo Airport (DME); John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York (JFK) and Sao Paulo International Airport in Brazil (GRU).
For me, these are great news, as I am a flying a lot on American. They are most of the time just the most convenient way to get from A to B for me. You can argue a lot about the service and quality of American Airlines, but they always treated me fair and I am excited about this new Oneworld partner.
