Royal Air Maroc and British Airways to codeshare

Royal Air Maroc airlines and British Airways signed a codeshare agreement opening new routes to Morocco. Which will make flights between the cities of London and Marrakech more flexible.

The agreement is already in effect. Flights are scheduled to start February 20 of this year giving BA daily access to the Royal Air Maroc center in Casablanca, Morocco.

“We are delighted to partner with Royal Air Moroc to create our first codeshare agreement. This agreement will give our customers more flight options to the largest tourist destination in Africa, Morocco. It will also connect our extensive global network to new destinations,” said Chris Fordyce, head of alliances at British Airways.

The presence of British in Casablanca will serve to make connections to destinations such as Abidjan, in Ivory Coast, Freetown in Sierra Leone and Agadir, in Morocco.

Hamid Addou, director of Royal Air Maroc, said that the consolidation of the shared code is a reflection of the importance of the Moroccan airline to connect Africa with the rest of the world.
