Moroccan authorities have decided to suspend temporarily flights to and from France starting Nov.28 due to a surge of Covid-19 infections and deaths in some European countries as winter season approaches.
The flights suspension was initially to be enforced this Friday but was postponed by two days to enable Moroccan nationals and foreigners living in the Kingdom to make necessary travel arrangements.
On Thursday, the Moroccan Govt. decided to extend Covid-19 health emergency until December 31 to preserve the progress achieved in the fight against the pandemic and reduce the risks of contamination by the virus variants.
To date, over 22.6 million people have been fully vaccinated in Morocco, 24.4 million received their first dose of the vaccine, while over 1.6 million others got their third booster jab.
Morocco, which is taking the lead in Africa and Arab world, has already reached the global Covid-19 vaccination target set by the World Health Organization.
