Qatar Airways expands Moroccan network

July 04, 2016: Qatar Airways celebrated the addition of tourist favourite Marrakech to its global route map, with the airline’s inaugural flight landing at Marrakech Menara Airport on July 1. With this, it expands Moroccan network with three flights a week to Marrakech.

Import and export businesses in Morocco will also benefit from the new service which provides up to 33 tonnes of belly-hold cargo capacity a week.

Akbar Al Baker, chief executive, Qatar Airways Group, said, “As one of the country’s economic centres there is immense potential in Marrakech, both in terms of tourist and business travel, and we are pleased to offer the services of the world’s best airline to passengers travelling for all purposes.”

With a population of more than 920,000, Marrakech is the fourth largest city in Morocco and the second city served by Qatar Airways, with flights three times a week from Doha on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday via Casablanca. The return flight from Marrakech travels directly non-stop to Doha.

Qatar Airways began its Morocco operations in 2002. Today, customers can fly daily on Qatar Airways’ Boeing 787 Dreamliner to Casablanca from Doha.

 Additionaly through a codeshare partnership with Royal Air Maroc, Qatar Airways offers customers the opportunity to seamlessly connect to destinations throughout Morocco, Spain, and north- and West Africa, with the additional benefit of enhanced frequent flyer benefits.
