The Moroccan-owned flag carrier launched the Casablanca-Athens flight in April.
Rabat – Morocco’s flag carrier Royal Air Maroc (RAM) has decided to continue serving the Casablanca-Athens flight throughout the winter after a “successful” summer performance.
RAM announced its plan to continue connecting the two cities on Tuesday, October 22, reported Greek Travel Pages (GTP).
RAM’s chairwoman of Internal Audit Department Hind El Khadiri said that the “summer 2019 was good for the Athens-Casablanca route so we will continue with the same experience and maintain the two flights per week.”
The airline will run its flights between the two cities on Thursdays and Saturdays during the winter season.
El Khadiri also shared statistics about passengers who use the RAM Casablanca-Athens route.
The carrier transported 3,400 passengers between Greece and Morocco. The RAM representative added that the number records a “growth factor of almost 80%.”
El Khadiri also expressed RAM’s intention to add a third weekly flight to increase frequency between the two destinations next year.
The RAM official recalled Royal Air Maroc’s plan to join the Oneworld Alliance in 2020.
El Khaidiri said that joining the alliance will allow the company to extend its network.
“This will help us, of course, boost traffic between Casablanca and the rest of the world, but also between Athens and Casablanca.”
