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.
