Rabat – Following the restrictions imposed by the French authorities on flights from Morocco to France, Royal Air Morocco will welcome travelers who have booked flights to France scheduled between August 3 and 10 by allowing them to change their tickets to fly with Air France.
Royal Air Morocco is able to allow modifications, free of charge for its customers, thanks to its partnership with Air FranceRAM said in a July 30 press release quoted by Maghreb Arab Press (MAP).
Royal Air Maroc confirmed yesterday July 29 the cancellation of special flights from Morocco to France from August 3 to 10. The confirmation follows restrictions imposed by the French civil aviation authorities.
The national carrier also said in its press release today that the company “keeps its commitments to transport its fellow citizens and customers between France and Morocco”.
To benefit from a flight change “free to access our partner’s flights”, Royal Air Maroc invited its customers to call 0890 000 800 or 0820 821 821. International contacts are invited to call +212 522 489 797.
Moroccan authorities have decided to close the borders in mid-March to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Morocco resumed international air and sea travel on July 15 exclusively for Moroccans, residents and their families. The move also allowed foreigners stranded in the North African country to return home.
However, airlines have not yet been able to resume operations at normal levels and continue to experience economic fallout.
On June 23, the Directorate of Public Enterprises and Privatization of Morocco (DEPP) revealed that Royal Air Maroc was one of the companies hardest hit by the COVID-19 crisis, losing 1.05 billion dirhams ( $ 113 million) every month since Morocco applied preventive restrictions.
In light of the unprecedented drop in revenues, RAM has laid off hundreds of employees this week.
