Commenting on the relaunched route, Al-Wasiyah said that “Relaunching Marrakech will help Moroccan pilgrims travel to the Kingdom for Hajj and Umrah during the season. In addition, it will serve as a great convenience  for domestic and international transit guests, especially when travel activity between the two countries is growing at an unprecedented rate and new aircrafts are being steadily deployed.”

Saudia’s very first flight to Morocco was in 1967, operating  weekly flights with several transit stops before landing in Rabat. Today, SAUDIA successfully runs routes between Jeddah and Casablanca.

In 2021, SAUDIA transported 93,000 guests from and to Casablanca on 517 flights.  In the first quarter of 2022, the airline transported 68,500 guests on 348 flights.
