The Algeciras-Morocco link by helicopter becomes clearer


The airline Hélity is finalizing the procedures to launch the air link by helicopter between Cadiz (Algeciras) and the Moroccan cities of Tangier and Tetouan.

Hélity has already obtained the necessary authorizations to launch this new line by helicopter which, according to CEO Antonio Barranco, “can be an opportunity for Sebta, Andalusia and Morocco”. The first manager of the company says that he has already obtained “all the permits from the National Airports and Air Navigation Agency (AENA), the National Air Safety Agency (AESA), the Civil Guard and the police” on the Spanish side, also ensuring that on the Moroccan side, “everything is on the right track”.

All that remains is the authorization of the Council of Ministers of the Spanish government which must declare the heliport of Algeciras as a Schengen border, to launch this new line which will connect Cadiz to Tangier and Tetouan, reports El Faro de Ceuta. Currently, Hélity operates on the lines connecting Sebta to Algeciras and Malaga and recorded a total of 83,100 travelers during the year 2022.

The new link is special, especially since it will connect two continents (North Africa and Europe) separated by the strait and which were traditionally linked by sea. Hélity plans to provide its customers with an express freight and merchandise service, including all customs clearance costs. And thanks to its partnership with iJet Aviation, exclusive transfers will be made, assures the CEO of Hélity.
