Casablanca-based airline Royal Air Maroc has announced another delay in the resumption of its flights between Casablanca and Algiers. Initially planned for July 2023, the service is now tentatively scheduled to start on September 2, 2023. However, there is a possibility of further changes to the schedule.
The national carrier of Morocco and a member of the oneWorld alliance, had previously intended to resume operations between Casablanca’s Mohammed V International Airport and Algiers’ Houari Boumediene Airport in July. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, the airline has pushed back the relaunch to a later date.
According to the latest information available from the Global Distribution Systems (GDS) as observed by Aeroroutes, Royal Air Maroc plans to operate four weekly flights on this route using a Boeing 737-800 aircraft. The 737-800 is a narrow-body jet with a seating capacity of 12 in Business class and 147 in Economy class.
The proposed flight schedule is as follows:
– Flight AT560: Departure from Casablanca at 10:10 a.m., arriving in Algiers at 11:55 a.m. The flight will operate on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
– Flight AT561: Departure from Algiers at 1:25 p.m., arriving in Casablanca at 3:25 p.m. The flight will operate on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
It’s important to note that these dates and times are subject to further adjustments and may change in the future. Travelers planning to fly between Casablanca and Algiers should stay updated on any further developments regarding the resumption of this route.
Currently, there are no other airlines operating flights between Casablanca and Algiers, or between Morocco and Algeria in general. The absence of air connectivity is primarily due to the diplomatic conflict between the two countries regarding the issue of Western Sahara.
