Ryanair inaugurates its domestic flights in Morocco

Ryanair, the Irish airline, today, Sunday, launched its first domestic flights between Moroccan cities after obtaining permission from the Ministry of Transport and Logistics to operate domestic flights between the kingdom’s cities.

Expansion of domestic flights

The Irish company thus operated flights to the city of Oujda from Marrakech, as well as a flight to the city of Tetouan from Menara airport in Marrakech. Ryanair will also offer other domestic flights at competitive prices to 9 Moroccan cities, including Agadir, Errachidia, Essaouira, Fez, Marrakech, Ouarzazate, Oujda, Tangier and Tetouan.

Growth objective

The Ministry of Tourism, Small-scale Industry, Social and Solidarity Economy indicated that Ryanair plans to double its number of annual passengers in Morocco to more than 10 million passengers by 2027.

In a previous press release, the ministry stressed that “with the support of the Ministry of Transport and Logistics, as well as the Ministry of Tourism, Craft Industry, Social and Solidarity Economy, and in collaboration with the Moroccan National Tourism Office, Ryanair is preparing to take a new step in its development in Morocco, aiming to double its number of annual passengers in Morocco, from 4.5 million currently to more than 10 million passengers by 2027 “.

Axes of development

To achieve this objective, the company plans to focus on three main areas of development in Morocco from the summer of 2024, namely the launch of 24 new international airlines, the establishment of two aircraft dedicated to the city of Tangier, and the launch of domestic airlines connecting 9 Moroccan cities.

Contribution to local development

In addition to doubling its international air offering by 2027, Ryanair is committed to developing a domestic air offering by opening 11 new domestic airlines from summer 2024. These lines will strengthen air connectivity within the kingdom and will give an unprecedented boost to domestic air transport.

These new flights will greatly contribute to reducing the isolation of certain Moroccan cities such as Ouarzazate, Essaouira and Errachidia, while allowing foreign visitors to extend their stay in many cities and strengthening tourism in all regions of Morocco.
