Etihad Airways is extending its existing codeshare agreement with Royal Air Maroc, the national airline of Morocco, providing customers with access to more destinations in Morocco and West Africa. The new deal will allow Etihad passengers to get flights to Marrakech, Agadir, Laayoune and Fez adding Nouakchott in Mauritania and Dakar in Senegal from Casablanca in the near future.
In return, Royal Air Maroc will offer travellers access to Etihad Airways services beyond Abu Dhabi to Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Singapore, further complementing the partnership on the Casablanca Abu Dhabi route.
“An important part of Etihad’s growth strategy is to offer customers access to as many global destinations as possible, whether this be through opening up new routes of our own or through strategic agreements with other airlines, adding breadth and depth to our network,” said James Hogan, Etihad Airways’ Chief Executive Officer. “The expanded cooperation with Royal Air Maroc will significantly enhance access to destinations for our customers flying beyond Casablanca throughout Morocco and to West Africa.”
