Passengers travelling from Stockholm Arlanda Airport now have an additional low-fare alternative to choose from among the airport’s range of destinations.
As part of a collaboration with the Moroccan National Tourist Office to drive tourism in the region, Air Arabia Maroc has launched a new service connecting passengers travelling between Agadir in Morocco and Stockholm in Sweden.
“We welcome Air Arabia Maroc, which is the fifth new low-cost carrier at Stockholm Arlanda within a year. We believe that Agadir is a destination which will grow more rapidly in popularity among Swedes when the new route allows even more passengers to fly non-stop,” said Elizabeth Axtelius, Swedavia’s aviation business director.
The new connection will be serviced by an Airbus A320 with a 174-seat capacity and will be operated twice a week with departures from Stockholm on Tuesdays and Fridays.
“We are pleased to launch a new base in Agadir and we are confident that this step will further cater the needs of our passengers and illustrates our vision of continuous support to the Moroccan tourism sector. Since our inception, we are fully committed to support the tourism sector in Morocco and positively contribute to its development”, said Adel Al Ali, group chief executive officer of Air Arabia Maroc.
