Dubai carrier Emirates and Royal Air Maroc have launched a codeshare partnership.

The new partnership will offer customers from both airlines more ways to book and connect their travel between the two carriers’ networks. It will also offer single-ticket, multi-journey fares and baggage transfers to their final destination.

The new codeshare flights are available for sale through both the carriers’ website, via travel and online travel agents and through retail sales offices. Effective later this month, both airlines will place their marketing codes on each other’s flights between Casablanca and Dubai to a total of 209 combined destinations.

Emirates customers will be able to access 17 destinations in Morocco beyond Casablanca, as well as to 63 international destinations, including a North, West and Central African network spanning 25 points.

Royal Air Maroc customers can also access Emirates’ network beyond Dubai of over 130 destinations, including 60 cities across the Middle East, US, West Asia and the Far East.

Adnan Kazim, chief commercial officer, Emirates Airline, said: “We are delighted to enhance our partnership with Royal Air Maroc to a codeshare and offer our customers an unparalleled selection of destinations across Morocco, and a huge choice of onwards points in Africa. This partnership will further help strengthen our network connectivity, providing leisure and business travellers with more choice and convenience when connecting between both of our airlines.”

“We are very pleased to conclude this important partnership with Emirates which will contribute to the reinforcement of our traffic, and will offer our passengers a large set of destinations as well as a better customer experience thanks to optimised connections and end-to-end check-in, with international airport assistance within both airlines networks,” added Hamid ADDOU, chairman and CEO of Royal Air Maroc.

Since 2002, Emirates has carried over 3.4 million passengers between Dubai and Casablanca, supporting the country’s tourism industry and growing trade lanes. It currently operates eight weekly flights to Casablanca. Meanwhile, Royal Air Maroc will operate a direct route linking Casablanca to Dubai with four frequencies per week.

Emirates has partnered with multiple carriers in recent times. In March, Emirates and Garuda Indonesia also announced the launch of their codeshare partnership.
