Moroccan low-cost carrier Air Arabia Maroc has started a service between Gatwick and Marrakech.

The twice-weekly Airbus A320 flights are scheduled for Wednesdays and Saturdays.

The airline already operates flights from Gatwick to Fez and Tangier.

The new service is timed for short breaks and links to a Marrakech-Fez domestic connection.

“This new link demonstrates the continuous support that Air Arabia Maroc has provided since its creation to the development of tourism to Morocco,” a spokeswoman said.
