The first flight flew, from Casablanca’s Mohammed V airport to Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris, members of the Moroccan community living abroad, foreigners residing in Morocco or foreign tourists who were stranded in the Kingdom, as well as Moroccan students enrolled in foreign universities and citizens who had to travel abroad for treatment, on exceptional authorization.
Director of soil operations at RAM, Abdelaziz Rayes, said that the air bridge launched by the national company and which will link Morocco to several countries, aims to allow members of the Moroccan community living abroad to return to the country to spend the annual vacation among their families.
The flights are operated in application of rigorous preventive measures to stem the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, including the mandatory wearing of masks and physical distancing.
So far, 25 return flights have been scheduled, servicing in particular European, North African and African destinations.
