Israeli tourists will fly to Morocco now that borders have reopened on 7 February 2022.
After two months of “temporary” absence due to the “Covid19” pandemic, Israeli planes are back in force in Moroccan airspace, following the announcement made by Rabat on the reopening of its airspace on February 7, 2022.
The Arkia company is also preparing to set up direct flights between Tel Aviv and Casablanca, twice a week, next April, to double its flights to 4 weekly flights, while the Israel company has decided to start organising flights as of March 28.
Morocco will therefore resume flights with the State of Israel, which were suspended due to the Covid-19 “Omicron” epidemic, which led the Kingdom to close its air space to international flights.
In this respect, the operator of the tourism sector, Zubair Bouhout, has confirmed that Israeli companies have decided to resume their international flights to Morocco after a temporary suspension due to the pandemic, noting that a direct air route between Casablanca and Tel Aviv was launched on 12 December, with a frequency of three flights per week.
As a reminder:
Morocco was the fourth Arab country to normalise its relations with Israel in December 2020, after the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Sudan, under the impetus of the administration of former US President Donald Trump.
A first direct flight carrying Israeli officials took place in December 2020 between Tel Aviv and Rabat. Bilateral agreements were signed in the wake, notably on visa exemption for diplomats and direct air links.
