Royal Air Maroc flights from Manchester Airport commence

Posted 7 April 2017 · Add Comment

Royal Air Maroc's direct non-stop service from Manchester Airport to Casablanca has officially launched, with the inaugural flight taking place on Tuesday 4 April.

Passengers travelling on the inaugural flight were handed out free gifts and souvenirs by RAM staff as they boarded the Boeing 737-800 aircraft to celebrate the memorable occasion. 

The launch sees Manchester Airport become only the third UK airport to operate flights with Royal Air Maroc, and the first outside of London. The airline is running direct flights to Casablanca’s Mohammed V International Airport three times a week from Manchester, operating on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

The airline’s UK & Ireland General Manager, Achraf El Hassani, said: “Royal Air Maroc is delighted to have launched the only non-stop service from the North of England direct to Casablanca. The demand for these initials flights has been extremely encouraging, and we are thrilled to be providing yet another invaluable link from the UK to Africa.”

Julian Carr, aviation director at Manchester Airport, said: “We are pleased to see the start of Royal Air Maroc services from Manchester Airport. Being the only airport outside of London served by Royal Air Maroc firmly reinforces our position as the UK’s Global Gateway for the North.

“I am sure the 22m in our catchment area, which spans as far north as Scotland, south to the Midlands, east across Yorkshire and west to Wales and Merseyside, will welcome the route should they wish to access Casablanca for business or leisure. Plus there is the added benefit of new connections from Casablanca across the airline’s extensive network across Africa and beyond.”
