In view of the increase in trade volume between Morocco and Russia, Morocco has decided to increase its Casablanca-Moscow services, reports Maghreb Intelligence.
,Morocco will become one of the main destinations for RussiansMaghreb Intelligence News site says. The reason, according to the same source: “the sovereignty of the state and assumed neutrality compared to the conflict in Ukraine”.
Indeed, when Russia was subjected to severe sanctions, in which the airspace of the United States, the European Union, Canada and the United Kingdom was closed to all its aircraft, and its citizens in these countries were banned, the state’s Neutrality is a real breath of fresh air for Moroccan Russians and an opportunity to de-escalate tensions. Especially since Russian citizens are exempted from visas to enter and stay in Morocco.
So the Moroccan authorities decided to seize the opportunity quickly, starting a new weekly flight between Casablanca and the Russian capital, Moscow. Crew of national company Royal Air Maroc submitted visa applications to the Russian Consulate General in Casablanca this week, MI revealed.
,The aim is to introduce as soon as possible a third weekly flight between Casablanca and Moscow, instead of the two currently. These frequencies may increase in the near future and possibly provide a connection with Agadir and Essaouira. Says a diplomatic source.
To consolidate these services, other Russian airlines should be included such as the largest airline in Russia, Aeroflot, and the country’s third company S7 Airlines.
