The low-cost airline Ryanair announced tonight the cancellation of its flights to Morocco until February 1, 2022.
In a press release released Wednesday, December 1, 2021, the low-cost airline Ryanair announces the cancellation of all its flights to Morocco, until February 1, 2022, denouncing a “lack of communication” from the Moroccan authorities.
“Ryanair was forced today (December 1) to cancel flights to Morocco until February 1, 2022 due to lack of clarity from the Moroccan government regarding its flight ban. After issuing a flight ban for all flights to and from Morocco from November 29 to December 13, Moroccan authorities have yet to discuss with airlines what will happen after their decision in mid-December,” explained the company.
“Mandatory flight cancellations have affected 160,000 Ryanair customers to date and, due to continuing uncertainty, Ryanair has been forced to cancel all of its Moroccan flights scheduled until February 1, 2022, leaving 230,000 additional passengers facing disruption of their travel plans,” continued Ryanair.
The company announces that all of its passengers have been contacted and informed of their options, including a free flight deferral, a flight voucher or a refund.
“We deeply regret the unnecessary disruptions suffered by our passengers due to the cancellation of these flights to Morocco until February 1, 2022, due to the lack of clarity from the Moroccan authorities on what to expect, beyond of their initial travel ban decision until December 13,” said Jason McGuinness, Ryanair Commercial Director.
