Rabat – Air Arabia Maroc has announced the launch of a new air route between Casablanca and Guelmim, southern Morocco.
The low-cost company will launch the flight on December 21, the company said.
Through this new route, Air Arabia Maroc will serve the flight to Guelmim-Oued Noun from Mohamed V airport with two flights per week on Mondays and Fridays.
The flight is the fruit of cooperation between the company and the Guelmim-Oued Noun region’s authorities.

The company invites visitors to enjoy the region’s rich culture and absorbing landscapes, including mountains and the great desert of the south, as well as Sidi Ifni.
“Another must-see, the Tihmert oasis is one of the most beautiful oases in southern Morocco. This natural wonder is located in the heart of southern Shara. It gives off a special atmosphere marked by the daily lifestyle of the inhabitants,” Air Arabia Maroc.
The new flight is part of Morocco’s broader approach to boost tourism, a sector that was seriously hit by the COVID-19.

In addition to Guelmim, Air Arabia Maroc also fly to Agadir, Barcelona, Basel-Mulhouse, Bologna, Brussels Catania, Istanbul, Lyon, Milan-Bergamo, Montpellier, Naples, Pise, Rennes, Toulouse, Turin-Cuneo and Venice.
Morocco’s borders have been closed since March as part of the measures Morocco introduced to face the spread of the pandemic.
Since July, Morocco’s government has opened the borders for Moroccan tourists stranded abroad, Moroccans living abroad, and foreign residents in Morocco.
Most recently, Morocco also opened its borders to businessmen and businesswomen with invitations from Moroccan companies.
The country also allows tourists to enter its territory if they have hotel reservations.
