EasyJet Offers New Flights to Essaouira

This autumn, low-cost airline easyJet will launch a new seasonal link between Lyon and Essaouira, its second Moroccan destination after Marrakech

From October 31, 2017 to March 24, 2018, easyJet will offer two flights a week between its base in Lyon-Saint Exupéry and the Essaouira-Mogador airport. Airbus departures are scheduled for Tuesday at 10:15 am (arrival at 12:30 pm) and Saturday at 9:35 am (arrival at 11:50 am), return flights leaving Morocco on Tuesday at 1:15 pm (arrival at 5:20 pm) and Saturday at 12:30 pm (arrival at 4:35 pm). EasyJet will be without competition on this route offered from 35 euros one way, unlike that towards Marrakech where it faces Royal Air Maroc , Transavia and TUIfly Belgium .

According to Reginald Otten, Deputy Director France and Morocco, "in less than 20 years, easyJet has gone from challenger to major player " in Lyon airport. " Our Lyon base is the second largest in France in terms of number of aircraft based and employees, which are now over 200. We are delighted to continue our development and open the doors of Morocco to the Lyonnais . We are currently one of the main low-cost carriers on the destination Morocco and it is important for us to continue to anchor these deployments in regions, as we did with Marrakech served from Paris, Nice, Bordeaux, Basel-Mulhouse and Lyon. At easyJet, our mission is the democratisation of travel and we are proud to participate in the economic development of the French regions through this policy of regional deployment."
