Royal Air Maroc plans to double the number of flights servicing the Rabat-Laayoune route.
Rabat – Morocco’s national airline, Royal Air Maroc (RAM), is set to launch a new line linking the southern city of Laayoune to Rabat, as of March 11.
The new line will be operated by a Boeing 737-800 and will run every Monday and Wednesday at a fixed price of MAD 800 (one way).
Flights departing from Laayoune will be scheduled at 09.35 am to arrive in Rabat at 11.10 am, while flights departing from Rabat will be scheduled at 12:00 p.m. to arrive at 1:40 p.m.
RAM is also increasing flight frequencies between Laayoune and Marrakech from two to three flights weekly. The flight will be operated every Sunday by Boeing 737-800 at a price of MAD 700 (one way).
Flights departing from Laayoune will be scheduled at 9:35 a.m. to arrive in Marrakech at 10:55 a.m. Flights from Marrakech will be scheduled at 9:10 p.m. to arrive in Laayoune at 10:35 p.m.
“These new air routes are part of our strategy to stimulate national tourism. They will allow our fellow citizens to move more easily in the regions of Laayoune, Marrakech, and Rabat as well for personal, tourist, or professional reasons,” said Hamid Addou, RAM’s president and managing director, in a press release.
The inauguration of RAM’s airbase in Laayoune took place in June 2019 and is part of its policy to support Morocco’s regionalization strategy and stimulate internal tourism and development in the region of Laâyoune Sakia Al Hamra.
