A total of 40 new air routes will be opened between the main issuing markets and the different regions of the Kingdom for the 2019 summer season, according to the Moroccan National Office of Tourism (ONMT).
These 85 weekly frequencies are added to the more than 1,200 already existing, representing no less than 456,686 additional seats, said the Office in a statement.
“Good news,” says the Office, which attests to the attractiveness of the destination Morocco in its main issuing markets (France, Spain and Germany) but also in Turkey, Italy and many other European countries.
In addition to the new flights operated to the main transmitter markets for the destination Morocco, Turkey, Italy, Greece, Belgium, Austria, Hungary and Portugal also see the number of routes and the frequency of flights to the destinations of major Moroccan cities increase.
Marrakech is the first destination concerned, with the creation of 19 new connections, followed by Tangier (6 connections) and Fez (5 connections), notes the same source, noting that the North with Tetouan, and the South with Agadir, Ouarzazate and Dakhla, also benefit from new air connections. It is well all the regions of Morocco which gain in accessibility, notes the Office.
Eight airlines provide these new routes, namely Ryan Air, Easy Jet, Turkish Airlines, Air Arabia, Vueling Airlines, Transavia, Volotea and Condor.
If the company TUIFly decided to suspend the road Charleroi-Essaouira during the summer of 2019, putting forward the strong pressure exerted for the airlines during the summer season and the need to mobilize devices for the most profitable roads, the ONMT responded quickly by approaching other companies that could operate on this route.
From the winter season 2019/2020, the airline Ryanair will provide the Charleroi-Essaouira link at 2 frequencies/week. Thus the city of Alizés will benefit, from winter 2019/2020, 4 French routes: Orly (Transavia, 4 frequencies), Bordeaux (Easyjet, 2 frequencies), Lyon (Easyjet, 2 frequencies) and Marseille (Ryanair, 2 frequencies), adding a Belgian route from Charleroi (Ryanair, 2 frequencies).
