 Saturday, January 28, 2023 


In an attempt to place Morocco as an attractive destination on the global scale, Morocco’s National Tourism Office (ONMT) signed a five-year partnership agreement with British multinational low-cost airline group EasyJet. The five-year agreement starts from summer 2023 until winter 2027-2028, Morocco World News reported.

The agreement was signed by ONMT’s general director Abdel El Fakir, and Chief Executive Officer of EasyJet Johan Lundgren on Wednesday 25 January in London.

As per the agreement, EasyJet and the ONMT have committed to expand air connectivity to existing destinations such as Marrakech, Agadir, Essaouira, and Tangier, as well as to program new destinations such as Rabat, Fez, and Ouarzazate.

Also, EasyJet will double its seat capacity to Morocco from 800,000 to 1.6 million seats by early 2028.

Seven markets are targeted by the campaign including the UK, France, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, and Portugal. These are the markets where the airline has air bases.

Describing the agreement as “historic,” for Morocco, ONMT director said, “The airline [Easyjet] has a real expertise on the European market, our first source of tourists. This reinforces our proactive strategy on our target markets.”
