Next year, 2024 the Canadian airline Air Transat plan to open a route between Montreal and Marrakech. This will be a non stop route between the two cities. The airline began operations in 1986 and now flies to over 25 countries. However this new route to Marrakech will be the first into the African continent. Currently the quickest way to travel from Marrakech to Montreal is via Casablanca.
It is expected the transatlantic direct flights will start in the Summer 2024, with a twice weekly schedule. The Moroccan Tourism Office welcomes the plan making it easier and more efficient to bring North American passengers to Morocco. In the past decade, Morocco has seen a rapid increase in passengers from Canada.
