A new air link between Warsaw and Marrakech, provided by the low-cost company Wizzair, was launched today, as part of the development of tourist exchanges between Morocco and Poland.
From now on, two flights per week (every Monday and Friday) will connect Warsaw Chopin airport and Marrakech Menara, says a statement from the Kingdom’s embassy in Poland.
On this occasion, a ceremony was organized at Warsaw Chopin airport, in the presence of representatives of stakeholders as well as political figures.
Morocco’s ambassador to Poland, Abderrahim Atmoun, expressed to this effect ”his heartfelt thanks to all those who, after long months of work, made it possible to launch this air service”, noting that this link will further strengthen tourist flows between the two countries, thus contributing to the development of economic exchanges.
This service, he added, will also ensure connectivity with the south of the Kingdom and meet the demands of the Moroccan community established in Poland.
The diplomat and a delegation of 16 Polish journalists took part in the inaugural flight, the statement continued, noting that a dedicated program has been set up so that representatives of the Polish media can carry out guided tours in Marrakech and Essaouira.
The launch of this new air link follows a partnership between the Moroccan National Tourist Office (ONMT) and Wizzair, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe.
In 2019, nearly 87,000 Polish tourists visited Morocco, and more than 110,000 went there from Eastern Europe. Figures that should increase significantly in the months and years to come, concludes the press release.
