Royal Air Maroc is expected to be implemented into oneworld in mid-2020, when it will start flying alongside some of the biggest and best brands in the airline business. Its regional subsidiary Royal Air Maroc Express will join as a oneworld affiliate member at the same time.
Its election as a oneworld member designate was announced as the chief executives of the alliance’s 13 current member airlines gathered in New York for their year-end governing board meeting, just weeks before the alliance celebrates the 20th anniversary of its launch.
From then, the recruits will offer the full range of oneworld customer services and benefits, with the one million plus members of Royal Air Maroc’s Safar Flyer loyalty programme able to earn and redeem rewards on all oneworld member airlines, and with its top tier members able to use the alliance’s more than 650 airport lounges worldwide.
Until then, it is business as usual for Royal Air Maroc and oneworld and its existing member airlines.
