Air Transat operated its first flight connecting Montréal-Trudeau International Airport to Marrakech-Menara International Airport Wednesday night (June 12).

This exclusive non-stop service, the only one between Canada and Marrakech, will operate year-round: twice weekly during the summer (until October) and once weekly during the winter (from November to April).

“We are extremely proud to introduce this new route between Montreal and Marrakech, an initiative that not only enhances our destination offerings, but also strengthens our mission of bringing people closer together,” said Joseph Adamo, chief sales and marketing officer of Transat. “This direct route will allow the Moroccan diaspora to reunite more easily with their loved ones while offering Canadian travellers a unique opportunity to discover the cultural and historical wonders of Morocco. This is a major milestone in our history, demonstrating our commitment to creating memorable and meaningful travel experiences.”

This service is complemented by packages, guided tours and à la carte hotels for all travellers.

ADM Aéroports de Montreal is delighted to welcome this first direct service to Marrakech offered by our partner Air Transat, which will allow travellers to discover a destination rich in history and culture,” said Karl Brochu, vice-president of airport operations and air services development at Aéroports de Montreal. “And we’re even prouder to be the first airport in North America to offer non-stop service to this must-see French-speaking city. This year-round service will benefit not only Montreal’s large Moroccan community, but also all travellers looking for unforgettable memories. We would like to thank all the Air Transat teams who have worked tirelessly to develop this route, which once again confirms YUL’s status as a major hub for international air travel.”

The flights will be operated with Air Transat’s new-generation Airbus A321LR aircraft, featuring spacious cabins, state-of-the-art in-seat entertainment systems and the lowest fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions (CO2 and NOx) in their category.
