December 26, 2019: American Airlines has launched a reciprocal codeshare agreement with Royal Air Maroc for travel to Morocco starting today. The codeshare will expand to additional cities across the African continent in early 2020.
Beginning in early 2020, the codeshare agreement will provide American’s customers access to popular destinations in Africa, including Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire; Accra, Ghana; Lagos, Nigeria; Luanda, Angola; and Monrovia, Liberia. The codeshare will also allow Royal Air Maroc customers to connect to new destinations throughout American’s domestic network.
“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.”
American will begin seasonal service to Casablanca from June 4 as the only US carrier with nonstop service to Morocco, which will be operated three times per week.
