Moroccan authorities have decided to extend, until June 10, the suspension of flights with 41 countries to fight against the spread of covid-19 and the entry of new variants of the virus. Official Moroccan sources explained that it is Spain, France, Portugal, Italy, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Egypt, Algeria, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Guinea, Mali, Ghana and Turkey, among others.
The same sources specified that these measures also concern nationals and travelers from these 41 destinations who intend to reach Morocco via a third country.
To avoid the spread of the coronavirus and its new variants, Morocco has closed its airspace since January 19, Royal Air Maroc only operates flights to a few African countries, such as Mauritania, Senegal and Ivory Coast and two Americans (United States and Canada).
In addition to cargo flights, the Moroccan government authorizes “special trips” to repatriate people stranded on its territory.
