After many delays due to the pandemic, Royal Air Maroc (RAM), Morocco’s national carrier, has finally announced the launch of a new route between Ben Gurion Airport (TLV) and Mohammed V International Airport (CMN) in Casablanca.
This new route will initially be operated four times a week, although a fifth weekly flight is expected to be added later.
Flights will depart from Casablanca on Sundays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 11:55 PM (Moroccan time), arriving in Tel Aviv at 6:15 AM (local time).
Flights from Tel Aviv are scheduled for Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, with departure at 07:15 AM (Israel time), arriving in Casablanca at 12:10 PM (local time).
Flights will be operated by Boeing 737-800s, with the inaugural flight scheduled to take off in a Dreamliner.
The new and highly anticipated route is expected to further cement the ties between the North African country and the extensive Moroccan community living in Israel and allow tourists and business people to travel between Morocco and Israel easily.
