Air Arabia to open Morocco Hub

Air Arabia - fresh off its debacle with Fly Yeti will have another go at a JV with the launch of Air Arabia Morocco. Its joint venture with Ithmaar Bank, a Bahrain-based investment bank with global reach, and Regional Air Lines a private Moroccan based airline.

Management will be by the Sharjah based carrier.

However like its previous efforts - there is little that can be done to connect the businesses. The air craft of choice is of course the Airbus narrow body. But it is restricted: Range with 150 passengers and reserves with CFM56s 4843km (2615nm), or 5639km (3045nm), or 5278km (2850nm); with V2500s 4874km (2632nm) or optionally 5463km (2950nm) or 5676km (3065nm).Distances between Casablanca and Sharjah for example are over 6000 KMs

Lets hope it works for them
