Etihad Airways boosts flights to Morocco

Posted 16 April 2018 · Add Comment

Etihad Airways is increasing its services to Morocco to meet increased demand.

 

Effective 1 May, a three-class Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner will be introduced on the daily service from Abu Dhabi to Morocco’s commercial hub, Casablanca.

The introduction of the 787 Dreamliner will also see a scheduling change that will optimise timings for customers travelling to and from Casablanca. Etihad Airways will maintain an early morning arrival into Casablanca and operate a revised mid-morning return service that will improve connectivity to a wider network of destinations including Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Tokyo.

Etihad Airways’ Morocco services now offer a further boost with a third weekly service to the Moroccan capital, Rabat. The extra flight will operate on Saturdays until 12 May, and also from 30 June to 29 September to meet peak summer demand, using a three-class Airbus A330-300. The extra flight has been added to provide more choice to the increasing number of point-to-point leisure and business travellers between the UAE and Morocco, reinforcing a long history of trade and cooperation between the two countries.
