Qatar Airways is enhancing its international route network by resuming flights to two significant Moroccan cities. From June 30, the airline will serve Casablanca and Marrakesh from its Doha Hamad International Airport (DOH) base.
Qatar Airways will operate four weekly flights to Casablanca Mohammed V International (CMN) and Marrakesh Menara International (RAK) airports on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Passengers on this route will experience Qatar’s exquisite service on the Boeing 787-8 with a 22 business class and 232 economy class configuration. The flight schedule is as follows.
With the addition of Casablanca and Marrakesh, passengers can now enjoy connectivity to over 160 destinations on the airline’s global network. Marrakesh is the fourth-largest city in Morocco and one of the four imperial cities. Tourists admire it for its diversity and rich heritage.
Casablanca is the largest city in Morocco and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in North Africa. It is famous for its blend of “old” and “new,” with an appeal that showcases modern infrastructure while retaining traditional Moroccan architecture.
Qatar and Morocco have had a great diplomatic relationship for years, with Qatar being one of Morocco’s largest foreign investors. The two countries were brought even closer by the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The North African nation reached the semi-finals, which saw a record number of Moroccans visiting Qatar during the tournament. Qatar Airways CEO Mr Akbar Al Baker said.
