RAM and Transavia announce new arrivals to Tangier
Transavia and Royal Air Maroc recently announced an increase in their flights to Tangier, causing excitement in the aviation industry. This expansion should bring more tourists and travelers to this beautiful Moroccan city.
Tangier has become one of the most famous tourist destinations in Morocco, thanks to its rich culture, breathtaking beaches and magnificent landscapes. The recent news of increased Transavia and Royal Air Maroc flights will make it even easier for travelers to visit the city.
Transavia France operates from the busiest airports in Europe, including Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and Paris Orly Airport. The company has announced that there will be an additional flight between Paris and Tangier from June 2023. These additional flights will complement the connections already established from Nantes and Lyon in France.
According to Aeroroutes, the French carrier will serve an additional flight between Paris-Orly and Tanger-Ibn Battouta using its Boeing 737-800 which can accommodate up to 189 passengers. The number of flights operated between the two destinations will therefore amount to 6 times a week (every day except Saturday). Departures are scheduled at 6:10 a.m. (and sometimes at 10:55 a.m.). The return flight will take off from the Moroccan airport at 8:45 a.m., or sometimes at 1:30 p.m.
For its part, Royal Air Maroc also plans to increase the number of its flights from Tangier to various European cities including Brussels-Zaventem. Morocco’s national airline is determined to boost tourism by increasing its capacity, as it sees Tangier as a popular destination that should be accessible by direct flights.
In the direction of the Belgian capital, RAM intends to offer a daily flight from its base at Tangier-Ibn Batouta airport (between June 24 and September 3 of the current year). This connection, which must be operated by a 737-800 with 159 seats, will sometimes be scheduled at different times: 7:40 a.m., 3:40 p.m. and 4:20 p.m. Return flights will leave Brussels at 8.30 p.m., and sometimes at 8.30 p.m.
These additional flights are a welcome development for those seeking quick access to current popular sites in Tangier, such as the Caves of Hercules or the Kasbah Museum.
Overall, this increase in capacity for both airlines translates into many benefits for tourists traveling alone or with family: more flexibility and better prices.
