Royal Air Maroc joins OneWorld

At the moment, when we talk about alliances, it’s more for negative than positive reasons. LATAM leaves Oneworld without going anywhere else, Air Europa says bye bye to Skyteam, Lufthansa offers 50 million euros to Air Italia to join Star Alliance, Delta is disappointed by Skyteam and prefers to set up its own partnerships and Virgin Atlantic which, if it joins the joint venture with Delta and Air France-KLM, does not seem to be in a hurry to join Skyteam.

So for once we have a beautiful alliance to celebrate without unspoken words or clouds on the horizon…

As of March 31, Royal Air Maroc will join the OneWorld alliance!

It took the airline 15 months to complete the entire process from application to official integration, which is rather short and can be explained, according to the airline, by the excellence of its internal systems which did not need to be upgraded.

All ground and flight staff have been trained, the frequent flyer program has been made compatible with those of the agency and the necessary connections have been established between the reservation systems of the other airlines in the alliance.

This fills a gap for OneWorld, which had no member on the African continent, compared to one in Skyteam (Kenya Airways) and two in Star Alliance (Ethiopian Airlines and South African Airways).

But as an alliance or a partnership is only as good as its execution and not as the declarations of intent, we will wait to see how it will actually start.

But in the meantime, let’s finally enjoy some positive news in the world of wedding rings.
