Morocco is suspending regular flights to and from France, while the health situation is deteriorating again in France. The measure, announced by the Moroccan Foreign Ministry, was to enter into force from midnight Friday, French time, but was postponed to Sunday, November 28.

The announcement comes a few hours after the strengthening of health measures in France.

« The Moroccan authorities have decided to postpone the suspension of direct flights from France until Sunday 28 at 11.59 p.m. instead of Friday 26 November 2021 “, Wrote on its Twitter account the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

France, its first economic partner, is facing a fifth wave of Covid, while the Cherifian kingdom, on the contrary, has seen the epidemiological situation improve very markedly, which allowed the Moroccan authorities to lift the nighttime curfew that had lasted for months.

For several weeks, Morocco had reinforced its controls for travelers from Europe, Algeria and Tunisia: health pass and mandatory negative PCR test, control by thermal cameras and electronic thermometer. They risked being returned to their country of origin if they tested positive.

Last month, Moroccan authorities also suspended flights to and from Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Russia, due to the evolving health situation in these countries.

Air France says it has strengthened its flight program on Friday and canceled all departures to Morocco at least until next Tuesday.
