RAM adjusts flight times on GMT during Ramadan

Royal Air Maroc is reminding its customers that its schedules will use GMT in Morocco from May 5 to June 9.

Following the government’s announcement to turn back clocks from GMT+1 to GMT for the holy month of Ramadan, Morocco’s flag carrier Royal Air Maroc (RAM) has reminded its customers to set their clocks one hour back.

Royal Air Maroc said in a press release that the timing of its flights will advance one hour. It will take effect on May 5 at 3 a.m for all arriving and departing flights at Moroccan airports and will run until June 9 at 2 a.m.

“In this regard, our customers are kindly asked to arrive on time for the check in, at least three hours prior to take-off time,” RAM announced.

For further inquiry on flight schedules, customers are also invited to use the newly-launched chatbot on WhatsApp at RAM’s national number, 089000 0800, or international number, +212522489797.

According to astronomers, Ramadan is to expected to start on May 7 as confirmed by the Ministry of Endowments and Islamic affairs on Sunday, April 7.

The government’s abrupt decision to adopt GMT+1 around the year just two days after Moroccans were to set their clocks back to winter time has angered many Moroccans.

In 2017, a group of activists launched a petition calling on the government to drop daylight savings time.
