Rabat – Moroccan airline Royal Air Maroc (RAM) launched a new flight route between Casablanca and Porto, Portugal on June 25.
There will be three flights a week between Mohammed V airport in Casablanca and Francisco Sa-Carneiro airport in Porto, Portugal’s second largest city.
The new route will be taken by aboard a Boeing 737-700 or 800.
Flights will depart from Casablanca on Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays at 3:05 p.m., and will arrive in Porto at the local time of 4:45 p.m. Flights will return from Porto on the same days, leaving at 5:45 p.m. and arriving to Morocco at 7:20 p.m.
RAM’s regional director for Portugal, Adil Korchi, told MAP that given almost three tons of freight are available on each flight, the new journey is “quite a good opportunity for import and export companies” from each of the two countries.
Royal Air Maroc offered thrice weekly flights between Casablanca and Porto in December 2010, but this journey was abandoned at the end of the winter season.
