Royal Air Maroc - AT to join oneworld mid-2022

RAM will be the first African airline to fully join oneworld alliance, and the first new airline to fully join in four years. This will expand oneworld’s reach into north and west Africa particularly, and offer benefits to those also flying AA, AY, BA, IB, QR, S7, etc. and add some good award and earning routes for Safar Flyer members.

See this post in the oneworld forum, and here for the RAM route network map.

what a joke this is

of all the candidates mentioned to join OW, Air Maroc is the most useless IMO

all this talk of Qatar quitting oneworld and now this less than illustrious carrier being added

I find this a very welcome addition. Perhaps AA would allow CMN connections on NA-EU awards. North Africa itself is a worthy destination as well.
The only disappointment in this announcement is having to wait 2 yrs for the integration to be fully implemented.
(the thread title should have the target date corrected to mid-2020)

I don't know about that. Morocco has been a booming tourist destination for the last few years, and they've been expanding their North American routes (and buying some spiffy new planes in the process). Personally I'm a DL/B6 guy, so OW doesn't mean much to me, but I would have loved to have RAM join SkyTeam.

I've flown AT quite a lot between Europe and CMN. Almost always in business class and they were far and away better than AF, BA, KL, LH, LX, IB and all the rest. I've not flown them further south into Africa, but I can't believe it would be significantly different. They have standards. Unless the complaints are about aircraft technical delays. That would be more likely in sub-saharan African than Europe.

They’re really not joining until 2022?
