The German low-cost airline has decided to suspend three of its flights between Morocco and Spain.
These are the flights connecting the airports Nador El Aroui to the Spanish cities Alicante and Madrid, and Mohammed V (in Casablanca), to the Spanish capital. These services had been put in place at the beginning of the 2019 summer season.
A few months later, the airline judged that their filling rate was not enough to achieve sufficient profitability. The regulars of flights Nador-Alicante or Nador-Madrid will fall back on the sea link that exists between Nador and the port of Almeria, located between Alicante and Malaga. This decision does not rhyme with a decline in business activity in Morocco, which opened its first travel agency in Africa, Casablanca, end of June 2018.
In addition to its main business as a low-cost air carrier, the Air Investment Company, which holds the Tui Fly brand in Morocco, and flight approvals, is also established on the market through outsourcing activities in marketing, IT, distribution, finance, as well as call centers for the benefit of other entities belonging to the Tui group.
On the other hand, the airline Tui fly Belgium will propose from April 10 next a new connection between Casablanca and Barcelona, its ninth destination from the Moroccan airport.
With more than 1,600 travel agencies and online holiday portals, the Tui Group stands out as one of the world’s leading tourism companies. It registers six airlines with 150 aircraft, 380 hotels and 16 cruise ships worldwide.
