Royal Air Maroc announces its plans to join the oneworld alliance.  The airline is the newest full member to join in 6 years.  

Royal Air Maroc Plans to Join Oneworld Alliance

oneworld Governing Board Chairman Alan Joyce, Group CEO of Qantas, said: 

“We’re pleased to welcome Royal Air Maroc to oneworld.  Africa is the last major region where oneworld does not have a full member airline - and has one of the fastest predicted air travel growth rates over the next few decades.  Royal Air Maroc will deliver greater value for more customers worldwide as we expand our alliance network to a new region.”

The airline is looking forward to becoming a fully functioning member of the alliance but predicts it will be mid-2020 before all of the operations are complete.

Royal Air Maroc CEO Abdelhamid Addou said: 

“Royal Air Maroc is excited and honored to have been invited to become oneworld’s wings of Africa.   We look forward to completing our flight on board speedily and smoothly so that we can offer the services and benefits of the world’s best airline alliance to our customers and across our own network as soon as possible.  We will be flying alongside the finest collection of air carriers in the skies, while at the same time making it easier for people all over the world to reach our historic and beautiful part of the world.  This undoubtedly represents one of the most significant landmarks in our airline’s 60-year history and on our journey to establish Royal Air Maroc as the leading airline of Africa.”

Currently, three established oneworld member airlines – British Airways, Iberia and Qatar Airways – currently serve the same destinations in Morocco between them: Casablanca, Marrakech and Tangier – which will give customers new destinations within the alliance.
