    Morocco: Air traffic controllers plan to strike nationwide Aug. 3-18

    03 Aug 2022

    Event

    Unionized air traffic controllers have announced plans to strike nationwide Aug. 3-18 to demand better working conditions and career progressions. Some of the affected airports include Agadir (AGA), Casablanca (CMN), Fez (FEZ), Marrakesh (RAK), Rabat (RBA), and Tangier (TNG). While organizers have not announced any protests, striking workers could hold demonstrations at airports in conjunction with the strike.

    Unless averted, the work stoppage will likely lead to numerous flight disruptions; however, workers will continue to operate state, emergency, humanitarian, and military flights. Residual disruptions to flights and airport processing operations are possible beyond Aug. 18 as officials clear the backlog of travelers.

    Advice

    Contact airlines to confirm flight status if booked to fly via Moroccan airports Aug. 3-18. Do not check out of accommodations until onward travel is confirmed. Arrive at the airport early to prevent your seat from being allocated to a standby passenger. Check local media or seek updated information from local contacts on protest activity at airports, as actions could occur unannounced.
