New York carrier JetBlue Airways has partnered with Royal Air Maroc to connect each other’s networks and bring new flight options to travellers between Africa and the Americas.
Through the arrangement, effective immediately, travellers can book single-ticket travel combining flights on both carriers and enjoy one-stop baggage check-in when they transfer between the airlines at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK).
Tickets are available for sale through travel agencies and Royal Air Maroc’s reservations call center.
“We are pleased to expand our partnership portfolio by joining with Royal Air Maroc to offer our fliers a new option to Africa,” said Scott Resnick, JetBlue’s director of airline partnerships.
“With Royal Air Maroc, JetBlue customers now have access to even more destinations across North and West Africa from an airline that shares a similar philosophy of putting customers first.”
JetBlue offers travellers connecting from Royal Air Maroc all-leather seating, unlimited free snacks and drinks, plus the most legroom in economy class (based on average fleet-wide seat pitch) as well as the free live entertainment.
JetBlue also operates one of America’s youngest and most fuel-efficient airline fleets, with 175 Airbus and EMBRAER aircraft.
JetBlue is the largest domestic airline at JFK, where Royal Air Maroc offers daily nonstop service to its hub at Casablanca’s Mohammed V International Airport, Africa’s fourth busiest airport.
