ONMT connects Dakhla and Errachidia to the world

The Moroccan National Tourist Office (ONMT) and Transavia, the low-cost airline of the Air France-KLM group, have strengthened their partnership with the opening of new strategic routes to Dakhla and Errachidia.

“‘Light In Action’, the strategic plan of the Moroccan National Tourist Office continues its objectives, particularly in terms of air transport and the establishment of direct point-to-point lines capable of boosting the country’s tourist activity. Latest action to date, the opening of two new strategic routes for winter 2023-2024; The Moroccan National Tourist Office (ONMT) and Transavia, the low-cost airline of the Air France-KLM group are strengthening their partnership with the opening of new lines on Dakhla and Errachidia”, indicates the Office in a press release.

“Dakhla and Errachidia are two tourist destinations with high development potential that it is important to support. Today, with these new international connections, they will be able to benefit from a new flow of international tourists and raise their performance”, added said the CEO of the ONMT, Adel El fakir, quoted in the press release.

For Dakhla, the company has just agreed to relaunch the Paris-Dakhla line by increasing the rate, this time with 2 frequencies per week. The flights will be operated from next October 30, every Monday and every Friday, in order to facilitate access and boost weekend getaways.

Remember that the line had already been launched, for the first time, in 2018 with a frequency per week but stopped in 2020. Transavia was the first company to operate Paris-Dakhla.

Dakhla will thus benefit from 3 direct international flights. The Royal Air Maroc (RAM), with the support of the ONMT, had launched a direct flight between Paris and Dakhla in 2021 which is still operational and which is recording good results in terms of occupancy.

Transavia is also launching a new direct line between Paris and Errachidia, with a weekly flight operated every Sunday. This is the first time that the city will be connected internationally.

Errachidia will thus be able to develop its desert and oasis tourist offer and be connected to all of Europe, with Paris acting as a hub.

Alongside this, the company will strengthen the service to Marrakech from the French province with the opening of direct lines Rennes-Marrakech and Brest-Marrakech.

These new openings, which will be online on the company’s website from tomorrow, July 17, 2023, will strengthen the ONMT – Transavia partnership and give even more importance to its presence in the destination. Morocco being in the top 3 destinations in Transavia’s portfolio.

Indeed, for the current summer season, the ONMT – Transavia partnership covers 331,884 seats to Morocco from France, i.e. an increase of 53.41% compared to summer 2022. The evolution of the partnership bearing on tourism lines is even more significant compared to 2019 with an increase of 280%.

Thus, the ONMT, through its “Light In Action” action plan, in consultation with tourism professionals and in line with the roadmap of the supervisory ministry, contributes to opening up regions and stimulating international application.
