TUI Fly Belgium will fly during the next summer season to two new destinations in Morocco. The Belgian low-cost carrier plans to launch two routes to Al Hoceima and Rabat, which will be its sixth and seventh destination in the North African country.
During the same period of the year, its rival Air Arabia Maroc will start flying to Weeze, near Düsseldorf in Germany, from Fez.
From April 6, 2023, TUI Fly Belgium will operate one, then two weekly flights between Brussels-Zaventem and Al Hoceima-Cherif Al Idrissi airport with its Boeing 737-700, which can accommodate 148 passengers. Departures will be on Monday at 3:30 p.m. and Thursdays at 8:10 p.m., with arrivals at 3:00 p.m. and 10:40 p.m. respectively. Return flights will depart from Morocco on Monday at 6:30 p.m. and Thursdays at 11:10 p.m., with arrivals at 10:40 p.m. and 3:20 a.m. the next day respectively. The Al Hoceima route will have no direct competition. However, TUI Fly Belgium will face competition on its route to Rabat from Royal Air Maroc.
The Belgian air operator will resume its connection to the Moroccan capital, Rabat, after eight years, from April 4, 2023, with one, then two flights every week in 737-700 or Airbus A320. Departures from Brussels will be on Tuesdays at 3:15 p.m. and Saturdays at 3:30 p.m., with arrivals at 5:45 p.m. and 6 p.m. respectively. Return flights from Rabat will be on Tuesday at 6:15 p.m. and Saturdays at 6:30 p.m., with arrivals at 10:50 p.m. and 11:05 p.m. respectively. With these new lines, TUI Fly Belgium will offer ten destinations in Morocco, including Agadir, Casablanca, Fez, Marrakech, Nador, Oujda, Tangier and Tetouan.
