Air Transat has announced that it operated its first flight connecting YUL Montréal-Trudeau International Airport to Marrakech-Menara International Airport.

This exclusive non-stop service, the only one between Canada and Marrakech, will operate year-round: twice weekly during the summer (until October) and once weekly during the winter (from November to April).

Joseph Adamo, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of Transat said: “We are extremely proud to introduce this new route between Montreal and Marrakech, an initiative that not only enhances our destination offerings but also strengthens our mission of bringing people closer together.

“This direct route will allow the Moroccan diaspora to reunite more easily with their loved ones while offering Canadian travellers a unique opportunity to discover the cultural and historical wonders of Morocco.

“This is a major milestone in our history, demonstrating our commitment to creating memorable and meaningful travel experiences.”

Karl Brochu, Vice President, Airport Operation and Air Services Development at Aéroports de Montréal said: “ADM Aéroports de Montréal is delighted to welcome this first direct service to Marrakech offered by our partner Air Transat, which will allow travellers to discover a destination rich in history and culture.

“And we’re even prouder to be the first airport in North America to offer non-stop service to this must-see French-speaking city.

“This year-round service will benefit not only Montréal’s large Moroccan community but also all travellers looking for unforgettable memories.

“We would like to thank all the Air Transat teams who have worked tirelessly to develop this route, which once again confirms YUL’s status as a major hub for international air travel.”
