Moroccan low-cost carrier Air Arabia Maroc has started a new route from Birmingham Airport to Agadir and adds to the existing 50 airlines operating from the Midlands gateway.
Passengers arriving on the 1120 hours flight, along with Birmingham Airport and Air Arabia Maroc employees, gathered to celebrate the service which operates twice-weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Air Arabia Group chief executive officer, Adel Al Ali said: “We are pleased to link Birmingham to our Agadir Base. Birmingham is the latest British destination to join Air Arabia Maroc’s existing UK network.”
Birmingham Airport acting aviation director, Tom Screen said: “For us, if the customer demand is there, it’s important we can provide enough choice to be able to meet it – whether this involves the introduction of additional direct services or an increase in the frequency of services.”
