The agreement seeks to strengthen cooperation between the two flag carriers.
Rabat – Morocco’s Royal Air Maroc (RAM) has signed a free sale codeshare deal with Royal Jordanian (RJ), allowing the Jordanian carrier to market Royal Air Maroc flights.
Through the agreement, RAM will serve RJ’s customers for the Casablanca-Amman flight. The flights will be scheduled three times a week, starting August 5, according to Arabian Aerspace.
CEO of RJ Stefan Pichler said that his company is “delighted to be working with Royal Air Maroc, a leading carrier in the Maghreb region.”
He added that the agreement will serve as a “further step in the strategic and historical partnership between Jordan and Morocco, and an added value towards higher air traffic” between both companies.
Morocco and Jordan share strong diplomatic ties, reinforced by the recent visit of Jordan King Abdullah II in March.
Royal Air Maroc also expressed satisfaction with the agreement. CEO of RAM Abdelhamid Abdou said that the new cooperation “comes to strengthen the links between our two kingdoms and support our Casablanca-Amman flight launched last April.”
He added, “ We are very pleased to start this codeshare with Royal Jordanian which will pave the way for our traffic and frequencies development on this market and will allow both carriers to access to each other’s networks via the Special Prorate Agreement established for routes beyond Casablanca and Amman.”
