Ryanair Announces Major Expansion in Morocco for 2024

Ryanair, the leading low-cost airline in Europe, has unveiled its extensive expansion plans for its 2024 Morocco flight program. The ambitious plan involves operating more than 1,100 weekly flights on 175 routes from Moroccan airports, including 35 new routes. The airline's investment of $1.4 billion in the Moroccan market will see the launch of services on 11 domestic routes within Morocco, aimed at enhancing internal connectivity and promoting traffic growth throughout the Kingdom.


As part of its summer 2024 schedule, Ryanair also announced the establishment of its fourth Moroccan base at Tangier Airport (TNG), with two aircraft representing a $200m investment. Additionally, Ryanair will commence operations at Beni-Mellal (BEM) and Errachidia (ERH) airports for the first time. Ryanair estimates that its expansion plan will provide over five million additional seats for passengers traveling to, from, and within Morocco. With the added routes, Ryanair's investment in Morocco, solely in aircraft, will surpass $1.4 billion. This investment will also create over 500 jobs for pilots, cabin crew, and engineers, along with numerous support roles in tourism, stimulating economic growth in 12 cities including Rabat, Marrakesh, Fez, Agadir, Tangier, Ouarzazate, and Essaouira.
