    A codeshare agreement allows two or more airlines to share the same flight.

    12 Oct 2021

    Rabat - Royal Air Maroc (RAM) and Israel’s El Al signed a cooperation agreement that will allow the two airlines to explore the “possibility” of codeshare services.

    A codeshare agreement is a marketing deal in which an airline puts its designator code on a flight that is operated by another airline. Code-sharing agreements are becoming increasingly common among airlines around the world to strengthen their presence in the market and to enhance their competitive ability.

    Royal Air Maroc said the cooperation agreement with the Israeli flag carrier will allow the two airlines to use code-share services along direct lines operated between Morocco and Israel.

    The codeshare deal will also cover routes beyond the respective hubs, Royal Air Maroc announced.

    The companies signed the agreement on the sidelines of the 77th General Assembly of the International Air Transport Association (IATA), held recently in Boston.RAM CEO Hamid Addou signed the agreement with El Al CEO Avigal Soreq.

    “This agreement comes in a context where Royal Air Maroc and El Al intend to operate air transport services between the two countries through their respective hubs, namely the Mohammed V airport in Casablanca and the Ben Gurion international airport in Tel Aviv,” Royal Air Maroc said.

    RAM added that it was also preparing to introduce a direct air route between Casablanca and Tel Aviv as soon as general conditions allow.

    The agreement between both companies is part of the Joint Declaration agreement that Morocco, Israel, and the US signed in December 2020.

    The three countries signed the declaration after Morocco and Israel announced a decision to re-establish diplomatic relations.

    Under the agreement, the three countries announced their determination to boost relations and cooperate in different fields, including air services, technology, and trade, among others.
