U.S. Customer Service Plan/Contingency Plan for Lengthy Tarmac Delays
Royal Air Maroc Customer Service Plan
Royal Air Maroc intends to ensure that your air travel experience will encompass, to the best of our abilities, the most comprehensive customer service possible. We have outlined our responsibilities and how we will fulfill them in key points below, known as our Customer Service Plan.
The Royal Air Maroc Customer Service Plan applies only to bookings for transportation to or from the USA.
1. Offering the lowest fare available
We will offer our lowest fares on www.royalairmaroc.com. Our telephone reservation system and airport ticket counters in the US will offer the lowest published fare for which you are eligible, which may not be as low as the fares offered on www.royalairmaroc.com. Customers calling our reservations office or visiting our ticket offices or counters to purchase a ticket will be advised that lower fares may be available on the Internet.
2. Notifying consumers of known delays, cancellations, and diversions
We will provide full and timely information on the status of known delays, cancellations, and diversions within 30 minutes after we become aware of such a change by:
- Providing flight status information via our telephone reservation system, on www.royalairmaroc.com, and via our SMS, email and telephone subscription flight status notification services.
- Providing, through our gate agents at US airports, consistent and timely updates in the boarding gate area.
- Updating flight status displays and other sources of flight information under our control at US airports and provide flight status updates to U.S. airports that accept such information for airport-controlled display systems.
3. Delivering baggage on time
It is our intention to deliver your baggage on time. However, in the event that this does not occur, we will strive to return your misplaced baggage within 24 hours. If upon arrival you have not been able to pick up your baggage, go to Baggage Services to fill out a declaration. The information you give will be immediately entered into Worldtracer, the worldwide baggage search system. A file number will be issued and your will be able to monitor what is happening over the Internet.
Unless otherwise stated, for international travel governed by the Montreal Convention, liability for damages for delayed, lost or damaged baggage is limited to a maximum of 1,131 Special Drawing Rights per person. We will reimburse any fee charged to a passenger to transport a bag if that bag is lost and we will compensate passengers for reasonable expenses that result from a delay in delivery as required by the Montreal Convention.
4. Providing prompt ticket refunds
For refunds for eligible international tickets, including refunds for ancillary services that were not used due to an oversale situation or flight cancellation, we will issue a credit statement to your credit card issuer within seven business days of receipt of full documentation for the refund requested for credit card purchases within the United States and will provide a refund within 20 days of receipt of a complete refund request for purchases made by cash or check.
Royal Air Maroc will refund a purchased ticket with a full refund without penalty up to 24 hours after reservation for reservations made seven days (168 hours) or more prior to the flight’s scheduled departure. This policy applies to refundable as well as non-refundable fares.
5. Properly accommodating passengers with disabilities and other special needs, including during tarmac delays
Passengers with Disabilities and Other Special Needs
Accommodating the special needs of passengers with disabilities is a top priority for Royal Air Maroc. Royal Air Maroc provides special service for physically impaired passengers and guarantees optimum conditions of comfort, security and assistance for the entire duration of the journey, including:
- Transportation to, from, and between gates.
- Boarding assistance.
- Assistance with visual, auditory, cognitive, or mobility impairments while in the airport and on the plane.
- Consideration of your needs during extended tarmac delays.
Our policies ensure the safety and well being of children traveling alone including:
- Permanent surveillance by the flight personnel from check-in to delivery of the child at the place of destination.
- Providing an identification packet to the child and requiring the accompanying party fill out a "UM travel form", that has to be signed upon arrival by the individual awaiting the child at the airport. That individual must produce a currently valid personal I.D. document and sign the "UM travel form".
- Providing unaccompanied passenger service for children under 12 but at least 8 years old at the date of the outgoing journey, provided a disclaimer of responsibility is signed by the parents or legal guardian. Children under 8 are not accepted to travel alone. They have to be accompanied by another passenger at least 15 years old. Exception: Children under 8 and over 4 on direct flights (no connections) can be accepted to travel alone but only provided there are no more than three children travelling on the same plane in these conditions. To do this, the child or children must be mentioned upon reserving.
- When the passenger is not the father, mother or legal guardian, a duly signed certificate stating acceptance of responsibility for the child for the duration of the flight shall be required.
6. Meeting customers’ essential needs during lengthy tarmac delays
If there is a lengthy tarmac delay at a US airport, and, if safety and security conditions allow, we will provide for your essential needs such as food, potable water, operable lavatory facilities, and access to medical treatment.
