EtihadAirways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has announced it will extend its existing codeshare agreement with Royal Air Maroc, the national airline of Morocco, providing customers with access to more destinations in Morocco and West Africa.

The new deal will allow Etihad passengers to travel from Casablanca to the Moroccan destinations of Agadir, Laayoune, Fez and Marrakech adding Nouakchott in Mauritania and Dakar in Senegal in the near future.

In return, Royal Air Maroc will offer travellers access to Etihad Airways services beyond Abu Dhabi to Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Singapore, further complementing the partnership on the Casablanca Abu Dhabi route.

James Hogan, Etihad Airways' Chief Executive Officer, said: "An important part of Etihad's growth strategy is to offer customers access to as many global destinations as possible, whether this be through opening up new routes of our own or through strategic agreements with other airlines, adding breadth and depth to our network.
