Norwegian with more flights to Morocco
Friday 27, August 2010
On November 6th, Norwegian will launch weekly flights to the popular seaside resort of Agadir, Morocco from Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm.
At the same time the airline increases its weekly flight from Oslo to Marrakech from one to two departures a week and introduces a twice-weekly offer from Stockholm and Copenhagen to Marrakech.
“Morocco is a beautiful and exciting country. Our direct flight from Oslo to Marrakech was launched with great success in 2008, and the demand for more flights to Morocco has been high. This winter we will therefore expand our Moroccan offer to also include Copenhagen and Stockholm,” said Daniel Skjeldam, Chief Commercial Officer for Norwegian.
“The Nordic Countries are the Moroccan National Tourist Office’s (MNTO) new priority markets for the coming years, as Morocco is beginning to offer an increasingly more appropriate product to Scandinavian travellers. We, together with Norwegian will set the right conditions for making the Scandinavian countries one of the strongest markets for the Moroccan tourist industry, aiming to achieve around 200,000 visitors by the end of 2013, said Mr. Hamid Addou, CEO of MNTO.
Morocco is a geographical and cultural crossroad, which has managed to preserve its authenticity for centuries while opening up to the world. Morocco is also characterized by its huge diversity in landscapes and climate, along with a 3500 km coastline, full of white sandy beaches.
Norwegian will fly directly to Marrakech from Oslo and Stockholm every Tuesday and Saturday and from Copenhagen every Wednesday and Saturday.
Norwegian will fly directly to Agadir from Oslo, Copenhagen and Stockholm every Saturday.
All routes will be flown with Norwegians new and more environmentally friendly Boeing 737-800 aircraft. The flight time to Marrakech and Agadir will be estimated to around 5 hours from Oslo and Stockholm and 4,5 hours from Copenhagen.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
