A Very Interesting Status Match Opportunity from a Oneworld Airline…

Oneworld alliance member Royal Air Maroc is offering a status match opportunity that is well worth considering. The offer is available until 31 May, 2022, but the sooner you apply, the sooner you can take advantage of the benefits…

What Status is Being Matched?

These frequent flyer programmes are eligible to be matched.

I have seen ITA mentioned on other blogs – interesting because it is also freely matching status – but I cannot find ITA on the official status match website.

What Status can I be Matched TO?

Royal Air Maroc is willing to match to its Silver and Gold levels. Gold is the level you would want. You will likely require a Star Alliance Gold or SkyTeam Elite Plus equivalent – levels that come with lounge access – to be matched to Gold. But you might get lucky…

Gold status is equivalent to Oneworld Sapphire status (i.e. BA Silver), which entitles you to:

  • Lounge access for you and ONE guest
  • Extra baggage allowance
  • Business class check-in desks
  • Free seat selection
  • Priority security
  • Priority boarding

How Can I Apply?

You must become a member of Royal Air Maroc’s Safar Flyer programme.

You must then apply for the status match on this website. You must pay 49 euros (roughly £41) as an application fee.

How Long is the Status Good For?

If approved, your new elite status will be valid until 31 March, 2023.

Can I Continue to Earn Miles with a Different Programme?

If your main interest is lounge access, you can usually show your physical or digital card at the lounge entrance. (and use your BA account for earning Avios) But otherwise you would usually need to leave your new Safar Flyer status attached to your booking, at least until boarding…

Bottom Line

Oneworld Sapphire status is very useful. So if you are interested in a year of Oneworld elite benefits, this status match is the perfect opportunity…
