Rabat – Air Arabia Maroc is expanding its offering of intercontinental markets. The low cost airline has announced the opening of a new line linking Marrakech to London Gatwick airport.
The Marrakech-London line will be officially launched early November, intended to promote Marrakech as a touristic destination.
The new line also aims to strengthen the connection of Air Arabia Maroc with Great Britain, one of the main European touristic attractions for Moroccans.
Air Arabia’s service consists of two flights each week, on Wednesday and Saturday, starting November.
“The opening of a line between Marrakesh and London Gatwick will undoubtedly contribute to the development of tourism in Morocco, which is one of our main objectives since our launch in the Kingdom,” said Air Arabia CEO Abel Ali.
“By strengthening our connections with Great Britain, we will also improve our offer and better meet the needs and expectations of our passengers, whether it is business tourism or leisure tourism.“
This new opening will add to five destinations served by Air Arabia, namely Montpellier, Frankfurt, Pau, Fez and Paris, which will be operational starting October 31.
The company will also open a new line between Marrakech and Paris starting October 31. According to statement by the airline, flights will be offered aboard an Airbus 320 three days a week: Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday.
On June 14, Air Arabia Maroc inaugurated eight new routes including a new flight between Fez and Marrakech, the first of its kind in Moroccan history. The flight will operate three times a week as a promotional offer. It currently costs MAD 250 one way. It has been developed in collaboration with Morocco’s National Tourist Office (ONMT).
