Having been given the green light to join the Oneworld back in December 2018, Royal Air Maroc will become an official member of the global alliance on March 31, 2020, according to Moroccan newspaper Le Matin. At the time, it was the largest nonaligned carrier in Africa.

When its accession to the alliance was announced, it was the first full member recruit globally for six years. While Southern Africa’s Comair (South Africa) (MN, Johannesburg O.R. Tambo), which flies as a franchisee of British Airways (BA, London Heathrow), has been a Oneworld affiliate member since the alliance launched in February 1999, Royal Air Maroc will be Oneworld’s first full member from Africa – the only continent, apart from Antarctica - where the alliance has, until now, had no full member.

Royal Air Maroc's regional subsidiary Royal Air Maroc Express (RXP, Casablanca Int'l) will join as a oneworld affiliate member at the same time.

Four established oneworld member airlines – American Airlines (AA, Dallas/Fort Worth), British Airways (BA, London Heathrow), Iberia (IB, Madrid Barajas), and Qatar Airways (QR, Doha Hamad Int'l) – currently serve four destinations in Morocco between them: namely Rabat, Casablanca Int'l, Marrakech, and Tangiers. Royal Air Maroc also serves some of Oneworld's most important hubs in Doha Hamad Int'l, London Heathrow, Madrid Barajas, Moscow Domodedovo and New York JFK.
