Posted 30 May 2019 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways’ first flight from Doha to Rabat landed on Wednesday at Rabat–Salé Airport, marking the airline’s third gateway to Morocco.

 

Present on board the inaugural flight to Rabat was Qatar Airways senior vice president Middle East, Africa and Pakistan, Ehab Amin.

Services to Rabat will be served three times per week by a Boeing 787 aircraft.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are delighted to launch services to Rabat, a beautiful coastal city and key business hub. This new gateway to Morocco will strengthen Qatar Airways’ already robust presence in the Moroccan market, while providing our passengers travelling from Morocco enhanced connectivity to our extensive global route map of more than 160 destinations. Rabat, the country’s capital, is also a major commercial and administrative centre, making it a key destination for business travellers, both from the region and internationally.”

Moroccan Airports Authority chief executive officer, Zouhair Mohammed El Aoufir, said: “We are pleased to welcome Qatar Airways as one of our airline partners operating flights to the Rabat-Salé airport. This new route continues to enrich the airport’s offers, and certainly opens further opportunities for Rabat, the city of lights.

This new route, in addition to the existing Doha-Casablanca route, strengthens our ambition to developing long-haul flights to this airport, as well as reflecting the strong relationship and cooperation between our two countries.”
