Royal Air Maroc to launch Manchester Casablanca flights

Royal Air Maroc is to start its first non-London UK services to Casablanca with three flights a week from Manchester from 28 March.

It will use a Boeing 737-800 on the three hour 20 minute flight from Manchester Airport to Mohammed V International Airport on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

The airline’s UK & Ireland general manager, Achraf El Hassani says the Manchester flight will offer an invaluable UK – Africa link, commenting: “Royal Air Maroc is delighted to launch the only non-stop service from the North of England direct to Casablanca, with thrice-weekly flights between Manchester Airport and Mohammed V International Airport.”

Manchester Airport commercial director, Stephen Turner says: “We are pleased to see Royal Air Maroc launch services from Manchester Airport. Being the only airport outside of London with this carrier firmly reinforces our position as the UK’s Global Gateway for the North.”

Royal Air Maroc also serves London’s Heathrow Airport and Gatwick Airport, and flies to 33 African destinations, including links to Lagos, Accra, Nairobi and Banjul.
