New Flights to Morocco

This winter low cost airline Transavia France will offer a new link between Nantes and Agadir

As of December 23, 2017, Air France's subsidiary will offer two flights a week between its base in Nantes-Atlantique and the airport of Agadir-Al Massira, operated in Boeing 737-800 with 189 seats.

Departures are scheduled Tuesday and Saturday at 7:10 am to arrive at 9:15 am, return flights leaving Morocco at 10:00 am will land at 14:15.  Tickets will cost 70 Euro one way.

Transavia will compete with TUIfly Belgium on this route, which will only be operated on Saturday from 8 January to 24 February 2018.

According to Hervé Kozar, Deputy General Manager of Transavia France, "The opening of this new destination in winter 2017 demonstrates once again the strong attractiveness of Morocco and confirms our desire to offer travellers of the Nantes region a greater diversity of choices in terms of destinations".

In other airline news,  the Moroccan National Tourist Office (ONMT) has signed a partnership agreement with German tour operator FTI in Munich to operate flights to Marrakech.

This agreement concerns the organisation of four flights per week to Marrakech from four German cities, Hanover, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Cologne.

This partnership is of paramount importance in that it promotes the city of Marrakech with a tour operator known in the market, explained to the ONMT.

It will promote new flights and reinforce others already launched under previously signed agreements.
