Etihad Airways will gain better access to destinations in West Africa following the signing of a codeshare agreement with Moroccan national airline, Royal Air Moroc. The deal, which comes into effect immediately, will enable Etihad’s customers to travel seamlessly from Abu Dhabi to Casablanca and then connect on to West African destinations including Guinea, Ivory Coast, Mali and Mauritania.
Travellers based in Morocco and West Africa will also be able to access Etihad’s expanding global flight network, having booked their initial flight with Royal Air Moroc.
James Hogan, Etihad Airways’ chief executive officer, said: ‘The closer cooperation with Royal Air Moroc will significantly enhance the travel experience and potential destinations for our customers flying to Morocco and West Africa.’
‘Etihad strives to make as many global destinations available to our customers whether it is opening up new routes of our own or through strategic agreements with other airlines.’
Etihad launched its four flights-a-week service from Abu Dhabi to Casablanca in July 2006, which was the airline’s second North African destination following it’s November 2004 launch to the Egyptian capital, Cairo.
Etihad currently has two other codeshare agreements with SN Brussels Airlines and UK-based bmi.
Etihad was recently named ‘Middle East’s Leading Airline,’ ‘Middle East’s Leading First Class Airline’ and ‘Middle East’s Leading Airline Website’ at the inaugural regional World Travel Awards, Middle East & Africa ceremony, that took place at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi.
