Morocco suspends flights with France over Covid-19 fears

4

Morocco will suspend all flights to and from France from November 26 due to Covid-19, the state news agency said on Thursday.

Morocco imposed a pass for access to public places after vaccinating more than 50 percent of its population.

Morocco had previously canceled flights with Russia, the UK and the Netherlands due to Covid-19 issues.

Earlier Thursday, French newspaper Le Figaro reported that low-cost carrier Easyjet had suspended all flights between France and Morocco until December due to tighter entry restrictions into Morocco.

The newspaper reported that under new rules, published last Sunday, all passengers – unless they are Moroccan residents or foreigners in Morocco – who test positive for Covid-19 upon arrival in the country should go back to where they came from – at the airline’s expense.

Easyjet representatives were not immediately available for comment.
