Royal Air Maroc is launching a new route between Manchester and Casablanca from 28 March. The Moroccan flag-carrier will begin operating direct non-stop flights three times per week from Manchester Airport to Mohammed V International Airport. The service will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Manchester Airport is the third UK airport to operate flights to Casablanca, with the airline also currently running services from London Gatwick and London Heathrow.
As well as offering direct flights from Manchester to Casablanca, Royal Air Maroc’s new service opens the door for connections to 33 African destinations. Key connections through Casablanca, the second-largest hub to Africa, include Lagos, Accra, Nairobi and Banjul. There is also an opportunity for flight connections to Brazil, as well as daily connecting flights to popular tourist destinations such as Marrakech and Agadir.
