Moroccan flag-carrier Royal Air Maroc is to launch a new route between Manchester and Casablanca for the 2017 summer season.
The Moroccan airline will begin operating flights between Casablanca and Manchester three times per week from March 28, 2017.
The service, using Boeing 737-800 aircraft, will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The outbound flights will leave Casablanca at 12.30 local time and arrive to Manchester at 16.00. The return flights are scheduled to depart Manchester at 17.00, and arrive into Casablanca at 20.20.
