Fans of the Atlas Lions can fly to Egypt this summer for the CAN tournament for MAD 3000.
Rabat – The Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF), and Royal Air Maroc (RAM) signed a partnership agreement in Rabat on Friday.
The three organizations plan to launch a flight program between Casablanca and Cairo for the Africa Cup of Nations (CAN).
Morocco’s Atlas Lions are currently in training for CAN 2019, which will take place from June 21 to July 19. Royal Air Maroc will schedule more than 82 flights during the first round of the tournament (June 23 – July 1) to allow more than 7,500 fans to follow the national team to Egypt.
The airline offers round-trip tickets at a fixed price of MAD 3,000 to attend one match, and MAD 4,000 for fans attending multiple matches.
RAM has a track record of supporting Moroccan Football. In May and June 2018 the airline provided 13 aircraft to transport nearly 2,500 Atlas Lions fans to the World Cup hosted by Russia.
RAM also chartered 18 exceptional flights in November 2017, connecting Casablanca to Abidjan to allow 3000 supporters to attend the decisive match between the Atlas Lions and Côte d’Ivoire as part of the qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup.
Tickets will be available for sale starting June 15 through the company’s marketing channels (sales offices, website and call centers), as well as through the national network of travel agencies.
