The company is determined that Ouarzazate will certainly attract customers looking for a change of scenery.
Rabat – Low cost company Transavia will launch a new flight connecting Paris-Orly, France with the southern city of Ouarzazate, Morocco.
Air Journal reported that the company will launch the flight on November 7. The company will operate the flights by Boeing 737-800 with a capacity of 189 seats.
The flights between the destinations will be available on Thursdays and Sundays.
Air Journal said that the company plans to “compete with Royal Air Maroc” with a one-way ticket of €64 for the new destination.
The new flight will bring the number of Moroccan destinations served by the low-cost company to 11.
Air Journal also quoted the deputy general manager for Transavia France, Nicolas Henin. The Transavia representative said, “after the opening of the Paris-Nador line last April, we are very pleased to offer today an eleventh service from Paris-Orly to Morocco!”
He added that his company is convinced that the city of Ouarzazate, “gateway to the desert, will attract our customers looking for a change of scenery.”
He added that the opening of the new destination will reinforce the company’s “development in Morocco and confirms our status as the first low-cost airline between France and Morocco.”
In addition to Nador and Ouarzazate, the company also announced, earlier this year, its plan to open a new seasonal flight connecting Casablanca to Lyon. This route is due to start flights on July 30. It will run until September 2019.
Tickets cost €59 for a one-way flight. The flights will use a 189-seat Boeing 737-800.
