The British embassy believes that Morocco will continue to attract large numbers of British visitors despite the loss of Thomas Cook.
Rabat – The British Embassy in Morocco announced that the repatriation of Thomas Cook customers begins in Morocco today, September 25.
The embassy shared its statement with Morocco World News, emphasizing that the “first repatriation flight for Thomas Cook customers from Morocco departed as planned.”
The embassy launched cooperation between Moroccan authorities and staff from the UK, the British embassy in Morocco, and British Consulate in Marrakech to ensure that “today’s flight, previously scheduled with Thomas Cook, departed on time and as planned.”
The embassy added that its staff will continue to work together to ensure assistance to all customers booked on Thomas Cook flights from Marrakech scheduled for this week and next week.

“With almost 700 000 visiting every year, Morocco is a popular destination for British
tourists and, despite the loss of Thomas Cook, will continue to attract large numbers
of British visitors,” the statement concluded.
