Start of services to London represents AAM’s first destination, following the official launch of the airline on April 29.
Roundtrip flights will operate four times per week between Stansted International Airport in London and AAM’s hub in Mohamed V International Airport, Casablanca.
The airline will fly to London on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays departing Casablanca at 02:15 am arriving in London at 06:35 am. Return flights will depart London at 07:20 am arriving in Casablanca at 09:50 am.
"Following Air Arabia's official launch last week, we are pleased to have London as the airline's inaugural destination,” said Adel Ali, AAM managing director.
“Customers flying between Casablanca and London will enjoy true value-for money services connecting the emerging economy of Morocco with the capital of the UK," he added.
AAM also announced launch flights to Marseille, Brussels, Milan, Lyon and Paris, commencing on May 10, 12, 14 and 16 respectively.
