The Austrian capital Vienna and Egypt respectively come in fourth and fifth positions, while Paris, Bariloche (Argentina), Washington DC, Florida and Amsterdam close in the Top Ten, adds the same source.
In an attempt to diversify Morocco’s markets, Morocco’s Minister of Tourism, Lahcen Haddad, said last month that his ministry would launch a promotion strategy in some promising markets, such as Germany, Brazil, Russia, Netherlands, the UK and the Middle East.
As part of Morocco’s strategy to attract more Brazilian tourists, Royal Air Maroc is set to launch a new route linking Casablanca to Rio de Janeiro next year.
The new Casablanca-Rio de Janeiro route will be officially inaugurated on May 2, 2016. The new flight will be added to RAM’s existing flights into Brazil on a triangle route alongside Sao Paulo.
The state-owned carrier will operate a twice weekly Casablanca – Sao Paulo – Rio de Janeiro – Casablanca flight and a single weekly Casablanca – Rio de Janeiro – Sao Paulo – Casablanca flight
Starting on September 11, 2016, the second route will get an additional weekly flight, boosting the overall schedule to Brazil to four times weekly.
