Signup for a Frequent Flyer Account and Get a Free Flight — Soon to Be Free Avios!

Yesterday Frequent Flyer Bonuses wrote about what seemed at first like a pretty obscure offer, but on closer inspection looks really valuable — a free and easy offer that many people should take advantage of.

The Royal Air Maroc Safar Flyer program will give 5000 free miles just for creating a family account by September 30.

You’re thinking I’m crazy, what in the world do you need to bother with Royal Air Maroc miles for, right? Even if they’re free…

Here’s the deal:

  • 5000 points is enough for a free one way ticket within Morocco

  • But more useful to most, Royal Air Maroc will be joining the Avios program. While non-IAG Avios airlines don’t generally get to transfer Avios across frequent flyer programs — such as Meridiana and Flybe — this will open up more earn and burn options (Royal Air Maroc is already an Iberia partner).

Royal Air Maroc has signed a binding MOU to join Avios.

That makes this offer likely to be 5000 points useful on more airlines, such as short haul redemptions on British Airways, as well as other options for a small number of points as well.

In addition new Royal Air Maroc Safar Flyer members earn 4,000 bonus miles with their first flight on the airline — but most of you won’t actually fly them.

  1. If you sign up for a new account, be sure to jot down the member account number. I didn’t and the number didn’t show up when I printed out the member card. Now I’m trying to get Royal Air Maroc to send me an email with the member number, but nothing is happening. Sort of like the efficiency of Royal Air Maroc’s operations, in my experience.

  2. Was going to do it until I saw this “- Send a scanned copy of the filled out form to safarfamily@royalairmaroc.com as well as the supporting documentation (copies of ID: passport or national identity card of each member).”

    Unfortunately my kiddos don’t have passports and are all under 18 and therefore have no other identity card.

  3. So you want me to disclose my , my wife and my minor childrens passport information to a country which was historically run by the Moors, in exchange for potentially a one way flight to nowhere?

    No thanks. Moving on.

    You must be really bored at this point.

  4. I agree with the comments above on disclosing valuable personal information to a second-rate airline in the Middle East diaspora. DON’T DO IT !! No other FF program requires this, and you have to wonder why this one does.

  5. Gary, have you heard any rumors about if and when Aer Lingus might be joining Avios, since they’re now owned by IAG?
