French term or phrase: trafic 6eme liberté
En effet, la compagnie a construit un solide réseau autour de son Hub de Casablanca et accorde de plus en plus d’importance au trafic 6ème liberté. Ce réseau n’est pas simplement égal à la somme de toutes ses lignes, il faut y ajouter aussi les fréquences, les horaires, les connexions ainsi que les avions.
