Morocco bans UK flights due to rising Covid cases!

Morocco has banned UK flights (flights to and from the UK due to the pandemic).

Many UK airlines and holiday companies have been notified by the Moroccan government that UK flights will be suspended from 23:59 BST on Wednesday until further notice.

The UK government has also updated its travel advice on visiting the destination, stating that the Moroccan government has suspended direct UK flights for an unspecified period.

The advice states that UK travellers will need to provide proof that they have been fully vaccinated for at least two weeks or a negative PCR test taken no more than 48 hours before boarding.

They will also be asked to present a Public Health Passenger form to the Moroccan authorities on arrival.

In addition to banning UK flights, the government has also decided to suspend flights between Morocco and Germany and the Netherlands.

EasyJet has officially cancelled all outbound flights from the UK, Germany and Netherlands to Morocco until 30 November.

A representative said that with the guidance of the Moroccan government, the airline hopes to fly inbound flights in the coming days as repatriation flight options.

We are contacting all customers whose flights are cancelled with their options, which include a free of charge transfer, receiving a voucher or a refund,” the statement said.

British Airways has also cancelled a flight from Heathrow to Morocco.

Passengers returning to the UK from Morocco should contact their airline or tour operator to arrange an alternative route through a third country, such as Spain or France, where flights are operating as usual.
