British Airways to Launch Flights Between London Heathrow and Marrakech, Morocco

British Airways has unveiled plans to launch direct flights between London Heathrow and Marrakech, Morocco.

 The airline will operate the route with four flights per week on taking off on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 28 October 2018.

The airline already flies from Gatwick to Marrakech eight times per week with a number of different flight times allowing customers to choose a travel time that suits them best.

Sean Doyle, British Airways’ Director of Network and Alliances, said, “Marrakech adds another exciting destination to our leisure network at Heathrow and is a fantastic starting point to explore Morocco; from trekking in the Atlas Mountains to discovering the amazing deserts and beaches and soaking up the atmosphere of the many medinas. Marrakech is one of the key tourism destinations in north Africa, so we’re excited to serve it from two of our London airports.”

The airline is also increasing the number of flights it operates to other popular city break destinations from Heathrow this winter, with more flights to Prague (27 to 34 per week), Budapest (20 to 23 per week) and Barcelona (46 to 53 per week), as well as increasing the frequency to winter sun destinations such as Gibraltar (9 to 13 per week), Larnaca (7 to 10 per week) and Malaga (4 to 6 per week).

British Airways recently added Nashville to its long-haul network from Heathrow and travellers wanting to head further afield this winter have a new destination: the South African city of Durban with the start of a direct service from Terminal 5 from 29 October 2018.
