This is not only good news for the tourist industry, but the new bases at Fez and Marrakech will see an investment of over $210m by the airline in Morocco.
The airline will base one plane at Fez and will now fly a total of 15 routes from the airport, including new routes to Lille, Nantes, Nimes and St Etienne.
Two planes will be based at Marrakech as Ryanair adds seven new routes to bring its total from Marrakech to 22. The seven new routes are to Baden, Bergerac, Cuneo (Italy), Dole (France), Munich, Paris (Vatry) and Tours.
The airline also said it would start flying new routes from two other airports in the country. It will operate two services from Essaouira to Brussels and Marseille and three new routes from Rabat to Brussels, Paris and Marseille.
