The new flight will bring the number of Moroccan destinations served by the low-cost company to 11.
Rabat – French low-cost airline Transavia launched a new direct air service between Paris-Orly airport and Ouarzazate on Thursday, November 7.
The new flight will bring the number of Moroccan destinations served by the low-cost company to 11, the National Moroccan Tourism Office (ONMT) said.
The launch of the new service is part of a partnership agreement signed at the International Salon of Tourism Professionals (IFTM) in Paris in October, Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) reported.
General Director of ONMT Adel El Fakir signed the partnership deal with Transavia President and CEO Nathalie Stubler.
The agreement aims to develop the airline’s capacities between France and various tourist destinations in Morocco.
The new flight, according to MAP, is also part of the 2019/2020 winter season program linking ONMT and the French airline.
The company will serve its flights twice a week.
The company will operate the flights on the new route with a Boeing 737-800 with a capacity of 189 seats, Air Journal reported in July. The flights between the destinations will be available on Thursdays and Sundays.
Deputy general manager for Transavia France, Nicolas Henin commented on the flight’s inauguration in July, saying that the company is convinced that the city of Ouarzazate, the “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.”
