Royal Jordanian and Royal Air Maroc concluded a free sale codeshare agreement whereby Royal Jordanian will market Royal Air Maroc flights, putting Royal Jordanian’s carrier code on these flights between Casablanca’s Mohammed V International Airport and Amman’s Queen Alia International Airport. Royal Jordanian does not operate flights to Morocco. The codeshare three weekly flights will be sold as of August 5, which will be also the first date of travel. The agreement with Royal Air Maroc is bound to enhance cooperation between the two flag carriers and improve passenger traffic by providing Royal Jordanian customers convenient options to fly to/from Amman; they can also plan their trips to reach further destinations on Royal Jordanian’s global route network.
Royal Air Maroc operates its flights between Casablanca and Amman with a B737 aircraft; the plane departs from Mohammed V International Airport at 23:10 and arrives at QAIA at 6:50 the following day. Return flights depart from Amman at 7:50 and arrive in Casablanca at 12:05.
Stefan Pichler, President/CEO, Royal Jordanian, said, “We are delighted to be working with Royal Air Maroc, a leading carrier in the Maghreb region. This agreement is a further step in the strategic and historical partnership between Jordan and Morocco, and an added value towards higher air traffic between our companies.”
Abdelhamid Addou, CEO, Royal Air Maroc, said, “We are very pleased to start this codeshare with Royal Jordanian which will pave the way for our traffic and frequencies development in this market and will allow both carriers to access each other’s networks via the Special Prorate Agreement established for routes beyond Casablanca and Amman.”
