Tui Fly inaugurated nine new flights this summer from Casablanca and Nador but is closing three.
Rabat – The low-cost carrier Tui Fly has canceled three flights between Morocco and Spain: Nador to Alicante, Nador to Madrid, and Casablanca to Madrid.
The Belgian airline opened the flights along with six others in the summer of 2019, but its parent group has decided the three flights did not have enough passengers to be profitable, according to Moroccan outlet Bladi.
While Casablanca will lose its Tui flight to Madrid, it recently gained a new flight to Milan, Italy. Tui also plans to open a flight from Casablanca to Barcelona next summer as the low-cost carrier searches for its niche in the Moroccan market, reports French outlet Air Journal.
Tui Fly is still operating flights from 10 cities in Morocco: Oujda, Nador, Al Hoceima, Tangier, Tetouan, Fez, Rabat, Casablanca, Marrakech, and Agadir.
From Nador, a city in northeast Morocco, customers can still buy Tui tickets to France (Lille), the Netherlands (Antwerp and Eindhoven), and Belgium (Brussels).
Tui fly competes with Ryanair and Air Arabia Maroc for cost-conscious passengers in Nador. The airport also has flights with Royal Air Maroc, Qatar Airways, and Malta Air.
Passengers traveling from Morocco’s busiest airport, Mohammed V Airport in Casablanca, will have the option to fly to Spain (Barcelona and Alicante), France (Paris, Bordeaux, Montpellier, Lorraine, and Lille), Belgium (Brussels), and Italy (Milan).
