Turkish Airlines will spend in December on a daily flight between Istanbul and Marrakech, one of its two destinations in Morocco. Inaugurated on March 27, the Turkish national airline’s link between its Istanbul-Atatürk base and the Marrakech-Menara airport will, according to its site, run from five to seven flights a week from December 16, 2019, with additional rotations on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Boeing 737-800 or 737-900ER two-packs.
Departures will then be scheduled every day at 10:40 to arrive at 14:10, the return flights taking off from Morocco at 15:05 to land at 22:10. Turkish Airlines remains unrivaled on this route, while on the one between Istanbul and Casablanca it faces Royal Air Maroc and low cost Air Arabia Morocco and Pegasus Airlines.
The Star Alliance company does not comment on this increase in frequency. As a reminder, she had planned to deploy 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9, having respectively received eleven and one before the re-motorized single-aisle were nailed to the ground last March.
