The French low-cost carrier Transavia has announced new flights from Paris to both Casablanca and Fez this summer
The flights will begin on the 5th of May. There will be three weekly flights from Paris Orly to Fez Sais, on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
From July 2nd Casablanca can expect flights from Orly on the same three days of the week.
The Transavia flights to Fez will be in competition with compete with Ryanair and Royal Air Maroc and the Casablanca flights will compete with Air Méditerranée, Easyjet and Jetairfly. Hopefully this competition will result in airfares remaining low.
Tickets are already on sale at 45 euros (490 DH), one way.
Hervé Kozar, Commercial Deputy DG Transavia France, says "Morocco is a strategic axis for Transavia. We work every day to offer Moroccans flights from Paris Orly. Casablanca is Morocco's largest city, the economic capital of the Kingdom, which is why it was necessary to offer this route. We believe the success of Moroccan routes to Orly is thanks to the geographic location of this airport so close to the French capital."
