Who are the shareholders of Air Oasis, the new airline to be established in Dakhla?

This company, which will soon start operating from Dakhla, is a partnership between the Moroccan group Al Mada and the Spanish group Globalia 

Morocco's new airline, Air Oasis, is preparing to offer new travel options within the Kingdom, as well as to European countries.   

The company, which will be headquartered at Dakhla airport, will position itself within the medium-haul market, offering short and medium-haul flights to local travellers and tourists visiting the Kingdom.   

As reported by Fes News, Air Oasis plans to use aircraft with a capacity of no more than 180 seats. Among the models under consideration are the Embraer 195-E2, Embraer 190-E2 and Embraer ERJ-145, in addition to the Airbus A220 and A320.

Regarding the airline's shareholders, Air Oasis is a partnership between the Moroccan group Al Mada and the Spanish group Globalia.   

The Al Mada group is already present in tourism through Ametys, a specialist in major tourism projects, and Atlas Hospitality, a former subsidiary of Royal Air Maroc. With Air Oasis, it will be the first investment in the airline sector for the large Moroccan group

On the other hand, Globalia is the leading Spanish tourism group in terms of turnover in Europe, America and the Caribbean. In addition, Globalia already has the Air Europa airline, as the airline sector is among the four main activities of the group.

Air Oasis would be the first Moroccan airline with Spanish capital. It will also be the third national airline, along with Royal Air Maroc and Air Arabia. However, its positioning will be different, as it will operate from Dakhla airport.  

Air Oasis will open a new era in national air transport in a particular context of intense tourist development in which air connections are a fundamental aspect.   

The Moroccan air transport market has experienced strong growth in recent years. The boost in tourism in Morocco, the large presence of Moroccans living in Europe and the organisation of the FIFA World Cup in 2030 are contributing to this dynamic.
