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).
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.
