Royal Air Maroc ready for CPH and STO

Morocco’s flag carrier to fly to Copenhagen and Stockholm

Morocco’s flag carrier Royal Air Maroc will fly to both Copenhagen and Stockholm for the summer 2013 schedules. According to press reports, flights from Casablanca to the Danish capital start from March 29 and to the Swedish capital from April 2. Casablanca is the biggest city in Morocco with 3.8 million inhabitants and also an important industrial city.
There will be three weekly flights from Copenhagen (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays). Casablanca-Copenhagen will be flown non-stop, but on Copenhagen-Casablanca flights are planned via Berlin-Tegel so that the total flight time is more than six hours. Stockholm-Arlanda will get two weekly departures, on Tuesdays and Thursdays nonstop.
The move strengthens links between Scandinavia and Morocco. Royal Air Maroc will compete Norwegian, which already flies between Copenhagen and both Agadir and Marrakech in Morocco. The airline is approximately 96% owned by the Moroccan government, 3% by Air France and 1% by IAG.
