Air Arabia Maroc launches Basel-Agadir link

The Moroccan low-fare carrier Air Arabia Maroc is launching a second service from Basel to Morocco.

The new service connecting Basel to Agadir will start on 29 October 2018, joining the Basel – Casablanca route which has been operating since 2010.

“We are pleased to announce the launch of our second service from Basel Airport,” said Adel Al Ali, Group chief executive officer of Air Arabia. “After seven years of operations to Casablanca, we have decided to offer our customers a new value for money option to fly directly to the sunny city of Agadir.”

The new service is currently on sale and will operate once a week on Mondays.

This is the latest in a series of new routes announced by the Moroccan airline this year, including plans announced earlier this year to launch a new service from Birmingham to Agadir which commences on 28 October.

In July the LCC took delivery of two new Airbus A320 aircraft, bringing its total operating fleet to 53 aircraft and with Adel Al Ali calling it a “significant step in the development of our fleet expansion strategy.”

The airline plans to accept delivery of Air Arabia’s first A321 neo LR early next year, the carrier believes adding the aircraft will enable it to extend its fleet reach and therefore enter new markets, as well as better serve existing high-density routes.
