cashing out Chase points

Greetings -

New to points. Have amassed about 180K Chase points.
Would like to visit Morocco with my better half.

Am I correct in thinking that the best way is to transfer Chase points to an airline that's both a Chase partner and a OneWorld member?

Would like to fly Royal Maroc to avoid a connecting flight.

We live near DC, if that matters.

Insights, tips & tricks all welcome.

Thanks kindly.

When do you plan to go to Morocco? Royal Air Maroc (AT) is not scheduled to join oneworld until mid-2020, and most oneworld frequent flyer programmes will probably not take award booking until then, i. e., you have to wait until mid-2020 to even know if you can book.

Ahhh -- well, scratch that thought. So then, anyone with ideas on how to minimize point outlay to get to Morocco (later June/early July 2020)?

Even though Royal Air Maroc is not currently a oneworld member, it is a frequent-flyer partner of the Iberia Plus program; and Iberia Plus is a Chase UR transfer partner (assuming that you hold one of the Chase cards that permits UR points to be converted to airline miles).

You would have to investigate award-seat availability for when you want to travel, as well as what type of cash surcharges -- if any -- Iberia Plus collects on Royal Air Maroc redemptions.
