    30 Oct 2018

    Rabat- Low cost carrier Air Arabia Maroc has launched three new flights to Dakhla from Casablanca, Marrakech, and Tangier.

    The flights will be operated by an Airbus A320 with 174 seats.

    The launching ceremony took place in Dakhla in Western Sahara on Sunday with the attendance of the wali (governor) of the Dakhla-Oued Eddahab region, Lamine Benomar; the president of the regional council, Khattat Yanja; and the general director of Air Arabia Maroc, Laila Mechbal.

    Yanja told the press that the new flights are a result of an agreement between the regional council and the airline. The agreements aim to give a new impetus to Dakhla’s tourism and to realize “the socio-economic development in this Moroccan region.”

    He added that the regional council seeks to support local development to promote the region’s economic and tourism assets. According to Yanja, another purpose of the flights is to attract more investment and to increase trade between Dakhla-Oued Eddahab and other parts of Morocco and beyond.

    Mechbal told Maghreb Arab Press ( MAP) that the new flights will help boost domestic tourism and promote trade between Dakhla-Oued Eddahab and other regions of Morocco.

    The airline has set ticket prices at MAD 500, according to Mechbal. She hoped to encourage citizens to visit Dakhla, a “city of national and world renown, and to discover the natural touristic and cultural potential of the region.”.

    She said the Ministry of Tourism and the Directorate of Air Transport helped launch the flights.

    Daifallah Andour, regional tourism commissioner, claimed the initiative will have a positive impact on “the influx of tourists to the region.” He added that he expects a 50 percent increase in the number of visitors following the launch of the flights.
