The helicopter flight between the two intercontinental cities will take only 10 minutes.
Rabat – Ceuta-based airline company Helity Copter, which provides regularly scheduled helicopter services, has announced it is launching a new line between Algeciras, a port city in the south of Spain on the Bay of Gibraltar, and Tangier.
The company already operates lines between Ceuta and Algeciras, as well as between Malaga and Melilla.
Border police have already installed booths at the Andalusian heliport so all the relevant immigration and customs checks can be made before each flight, but no exact date has been set for the flights to commence, reports local Spanish outlet Algeciras Minuto.
The flight between the Moroccan and Spanish cities will only take 10 minutes, the outlet reported.
Currently, the most common route between the two cities is via ferry, which takes approximately 1.5 hours.
