Royal Air Maroc Adds Yaounde And Monrovia

Fri Nov 02, 2007 11:38 am

I've just checked the new RAM's timetable for the period from 28/10 to 29/03 and noticed 2 new additions to the African network:

Yaounde (Second destination in cameroon after Douala) : Twice Weekly
Monrovia : Also Twice Weekly

Seems that RAM is still expanding its network in Africa through its Casablanca Nouasseur hub. There have been rumours about serving Lagos still no official news about the route as of yet.

I am always pleased to see new routes to African destinations, particularly intra-african routes. Nice to see Monrovia getting more flights after years of instability.

The last I heard was the possibilty of joining skyteam, but this was quite some years ago. Things have changed since Air France is apparently not seeing with a good eye RAM's expansion in Africa...

No seeing as AF think they have some god given right for a monopoly on flights to French speaking African destinations. I am dissapointed in the collapse of Air mauritanie and hope we see more competiion fot AF soon in this part of the world where there prices are ridiculous.

Well, SN and AT have been serving Conakry for many years now, so no Monopoly of AF there. As for Chad, it has been announced that AT will be serving N'Djamena sometimes in 2008. and I do agree with you that prices to and even within the Subsaharan region are incredibly high.

AT already serves Lome 5 times a Week (T-W-TH-F-S) as for Bissau and Porto Nove, I cant tell you if they are being considered or not cause I think both are very small markets and do not see much traffic anyway. But Hopefully they'll get served by AT in the near future!

When I was in Porto Novo I didn't see an airport there, and I'm pretty sure there is none. The main airport in Benin is in the commercial capital Cotonou (Cadjehoun airport), the only other place in Benin with (some sort of) an airport is Parakou (PKO).

If I'm not mistaken they already serve LFW.

I would have guessed Lagos before Monrovia. It is nice to see more service to Monrovia, means their economy must be making some progress. Is the traffic mostly connecting?

Yes, but given the level of competition in Lagos, a higher yield destination such as ROB makes more sense.

Indeed Liberia has stabilized, and the economy is growing a bit, nevertheless much of the traffic generated is NGO and UN related. But indeed Brussels Airlines serves ROB 3x weekly, KQ serves ROB 4x weekly and from Nigeria Aerocontractors and Bellview serve Monrovia regularly. And then there are Slok Air and Antrak.

I have been wondering for some time about AF-KL strategy with regard to Sierra Leone and Liberia (primarily since I was booking a flight for my father to FNA and it is nearly impossible to fly there on skyteam for a reasonable fare and schedule). Both were former KLM destinations, primarily as a stop towards Surinam, but later they were served with A310 and B767 in various combinations with Conakry, Accra or Abidjan. Since SN is doing fine on these routes, there must be some room for a 2x weekly AMS-FNA-ROB-AMS?

They need badly need a new livery, something like Royal Jordanian or Saudia would be great using the orangy-red sand colour found in Morocco.

There were rumours in FNA of a KLM operated AMS-FNA-ROB-AMS route with a 330. I think it could work well, but there is a problem of where to stop the crew.

Its like saying BA should still have been operating in their 1950s livery when they were BOAC, you might like RAM livery but they need to represent the airlien better as a company.

I liked some of BA's world tails and the current livery is also great, besides I had suggested something like RJ or SV liveries which are also great and bold schemes yet with an elegant Royal feel to them.

Why Sand? Morocco is not Saudi Arabia or Jordan, there is more to it than just the Sahara desert (where not even 15% of the population lives). I do agree that the actual colours should be changed but I'm more for a scheme that keep the national coulours (Red and Green).

= Spot on the money. AF would never allow it. Protectionism runs deep down. If they are tremendously opposed to MH entry to Skyteam due to the (perceived) fear of loss of revenue on the Kangaroo route, I cannot imagine them being excited about an African carrier moving passengers to Africa bypassing the nightmare called CDG. They make a killing on many of these African routes.

Moroccan sand or rather soil has a redish orange colour not beige atleast in some parts of the country, thats teh colour that would look great, just picture RJ livery in those colours, replace red accents with green.

Yes traffic is mostly connecting through CMN otherwise I dont think the route would be sustainable. As for LOS, it was indeed announced that RAM was going to fly there, but no news about the route for quite a while now, so maybe RAM got turned off by the Nigerian legendary red-tape? at least that's what I think.

Oh, I cant really confirm but I think that Kinshasa is also going to be added to AT 's network. Having said that, Kinshasa is very close to Brazzaville (which is an AT destination) but Im not really sure on how crossing the border from the DRC to Congo is. Cause if it is restrictive, as I suspect it would be, then it makes perfect sense for AT to fly to Kinshasa

They are indeed doing quite well on the West African routes. However, I would really like them to expand beyond the west African region into East Africa and South America for example. The latter being more difficult do to the proximity of LIS and MAD, both Historically better positionned to serve these markets.

On the East african front, one possible route that caught my attention is NBO, CMN being in the perfect position to serve as a stop-over between JFK and NBO (and even ADD)

Any thoughts?

Best wishes to Royal Air Maroc. I flew them in 1998 JFK-CMN on what turned out to be a life changing trip for me. The plane was a beautiful 747. I thoroughly enjoyed my 3 week journey through the country. I've often thought about going back for another visit but am hesitant because of the terrorist threats. Is is safe, Bambicruz?

It most certainly is safe, i go there at least twice a year with either BA or AT from LHR. I havent once ever come across a suspected terrorist threat let alone been involved in one. Morocco in general is a very stable country with many delights and secrets to offer. Its like being in Euro-Africa in casablanca and a Arab-Africa in the south (Marrakech, Agadir etc.). I would recommend you re-visit morocco as there had been alot of change since 1998 with heavy investment from UAE, US & EU.

Just incase you are wondering how i know.....my parents are moroccan so i go there quite often.

I really don't think so, for an African airline the Nigerian authorities are not strict in granting landing rights for LOS, even not so much for new non-African airlines. Quite a number of new airlines started services to LOS last year. But with all those airlines in LOS, why not focus on places were you'll find less comnp

Seems like you've been to more places in morocco then the average tourist. Im glad you enjoyed it. In regards to terrorism in morocco, i think your in just as much risk in the US and EU than you are Morocco. People have adapted to live by these threats thought their lives so it shouldn't put you off.

Wouldn't i find any in Moroccan Arabic newspapers like Assabah or Ahdath......or maybe in the english Moroccan ones like the "Moroccan Times" ?

I personally almost never read the newspapers in arabic as they tend to be "political" than anything else. So in terms of economic news I think they are pretty much useless.

I understand your parents are originally from Morocco, can you read french then ?

Unfortuantly no......i was born in england so i speak only Arabic, english and some spanish (from school). How about you....do you live in morocco ? U speak english very well.....and i envy the fact that most moroccans speak french and i dont  Angry in the year i started my school they were learning spanish so i had no choice.

Thanks
Life is a Journey, One Which I hope will include alot of Flights !! =]
