19 Aug 2015 by GrahamSmith

Qatar Airways and Royal Air Maroc have announced a codeshare agreement.

The deal, which comes into effect from tomorrow, includes codeshares on both airlines' routes between Qatar and Morocco and on Royal Air Maroc services across West Africa.

It means passengers can book a single itinerary combining Qatar Airways and Royal Air Maroc flights with one-stop ticketing and baggage check-in.

Qatar Airways passengers travelling to Casablanca will now be able to connect onto the West African cities of Cotonou, Ouagadougou, Praia, Brazzaville, Pointe Noire, Abidjan, Libreville, Banjul, Conakry, Bissau, Monrovia, Bamako, Niamey, Lagos, Nouakchott, Freetown and Lomé.

Within Morocco, passengers will also be able to travel onwards to Marrakech, Agadir, Tangier, Guelmime, Tan Tan, Tetouan, Al Hoceima, Fes, Errachidia, Oujda, Nador, Ouarzazate, Zagora, Laayounte, Dakhla and Beni Mellal.

Royal Air Maroc will start a thrice-weekly B787 service to Doha on September 9, complimenting Qatar Airways' existing daily Dreamliner flights to Casablanca.

Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker said: "The launch of this codeshare agreement with Royal Air Maroc is great news for our business passengers who frequently travel on Qatar Airways, as they will be able to connect seamlessly onwards to almost 20 destinations across the West African region."

Earlier this month, Qatar Airways newest B777-300ER quietly appeared on the Doha-London route operating a ten-across 3-4-3 configuration (see news, August 4).
