After Moroccan airline RAM and Air Arabia of the United Arab Emirates, Ryanair will be the third airline to fly to the nation in North Africa.

Ryanair is set to introduce eleven new domestic flights this summer, linking nine towns in Morocco: Agadir, Errachidia, Essaouira, Fez, Marrakesh, Ouarzazate, Oujda, Tangier, and Tetuan. These routes are part of a $1.4 billion investment.

Additionally, Morocco will be connected to Germany, Spain, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden, and Britain with the addition of 24 new international flights by Ryanair.

The airline announced that it will run more than 1,100 flights each week on 175 routes, including the 35 new ones.

Along with announcing its maiden flights to Beni-Mellal and Errachidia airports, it also revealed its fourth Moroccan base, which would have two new aircraft based in Tangier.

“Today is a momentous day for Ryanair and the Kingdom of Morocco's collaboration. Eddie Wilson, CEO of Ryanair, stated. We are pleased to announce a significant $1.4 million investment in Morocco for the summer of 2024. With our busiest summer schedule, we carry over 5 million passengers to and from the Kingdom of Morocco.”

Moroccan officials are hoping that more local and international flights would boost the number of visitors to the country from 11 million to 17.5 million by 2026. Morocco welcomed 13 million tourists in 2019.
