Royal Air Maroc has opened a new campaign, providing an interesting Status Match opportunity up to their Safar Flyer Gold tier which maps to OneWorld Sapphire Level through May 31, 2022.
The match comes with a 49 EUR fee and is either available to their Safar Silver (OW Ruby) or Gold (Sapphire) level from a variety of programs.
Royal Air Maroc isn’t a very prominent carrier and their program is probably not the one I’d choose for my permanent mileage collecting needs but if you’re using the status only to access some airport lounges and utilize other ground benefits.
Some of these benefits might require you to add the Safar Flyer number into the reservation in order to get recognized as a oneWorld Elite member but you could always swap out the number again either after check-in at the desk, on a machine or at the gate.
In order to participate in the status match, you first have to sign up for the program which is easily down on Royal Air Maroc’s website.
After obtaining your membership number you can then proceed to the status match site:
This match will be processed by StatusMatch.com which is a provider that has specialized in handling and verifying the submitted applications on behalf of the airline.

- United Airlines – MileagePlus

Members of these programs have the choice to match to either Silver or Gold depending on their initial program tier.
The 49 Euro fee is definitely useful to avoid “fun matches” of people who have no intention of using the Safar Flyer membership and the likelihood of people paying 49 Euro just for fun is very small.
This match offer is apparently “limited in the number of matches” so it may end at any time even before the official deadline of May 31, 2022.
This Royal Air Maroc status match campaign comes at a cost of 49 Euro and the tier would then be valid for a year.
As described in the T&C there won’t be a physical card sent, it’s all digital. You would probably have to enter the membership number in the reservation first in order to obtain the benefits or bank on the carrier of your choice accepting the digital card.
