DATA SPOTLIGHT: Royal Air Maroc

This year The Blue Swan Daily will feature some of the leading airlines, airports and country markets for air travel. Here, using the extensive profile insights available to CAPA – Centre for Aviation members to deliver a data snapshot, we look at Royal Air Maroc.

It’s no joke, Royal Air Maroc will officially join the oneworld alliance effective 01-Apr-2020, the global grouping confirmed, becoming its first full member in the African continent and the first new full member to join the alliance since 2014. It follows a 15-month implementation programme to integrate Royal Air Maroc into the alliance and its regional subsidiary Royal Air Maroc Express will also join as a oneworld affiliate member.

Royal Air Maroc will add 39 new destinations in 23 countries to the oneworld network, offering more flights and options for the frequent flyers of the alliance’s member airlines. The national carrier of Morocco, Royal Air Maroc connects its base in Casablanca with over 100 destinations in more than 50 countries over six regions – Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East, North America and South America.

Under its five-year growth plan, its fleet will increase significantly, as it extends the reach of its network from 94 destinations previously to 121. It will also raise frequencies in many established markets making virtually all short and medium-haul markets at least daily and, in many cases, multiple frequencies a day, turning its Casablanca base into a fully-fledged transfer hub.
