American Airlines has signed a codeshare agreement with Morocco’s largest airline, Royal Air Maroc, adding new options for travel to Morocco starting
26 December 2019.
American’s customers will be able to purchase select Royal Air
Maroc flights to Casablanca, Morocco (CMN), which will provide
seamless connecting service to Marrakech, Morocco (RAK).
The codeshare will expand to additional cities across the
African continent in early 2020.
“Royal Air Maroc is a premier
African carrier and their hub in Casablanca is perfectly situated
to offer our customers convenient connections between North
America and over 40 destinations throughout Africa,” said Vasu
Raja, American’s Senior Vice President of Network Strategy. “With
Royal Air Maroc’s upcoming entry into the oneworld alliance and
our recently announced service between Philadelphia and
Casablanca, we are committed to creating more opportunities for
our customers to visit unique destinations in Africa.”
Beginning in early 2020, the codeshare agreement will provide
American’s customers access to popular destinations in Africa,
Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire (ABJ)
Accra, Ghana (ACC)
Lagos, Nigeria (LOS)
Luanda, Angola (LAD)
The codeshare will also allow Royal Air Maroc
customers to connect to new destinations throughout American’s
domestic network beginning 26 December 2019.
American will begin
seasonal service to CMN on 4 June 2020 as the only U.S. carrier with
nonstop service to Morocco, which will be operated three times per
week. Flights are available for purchase now.
