This recognition comes, according to the media NRC Handelsblad, the sovereign’s commitment to facilitate the return of Moroccans from the world in this summer period, at the expense of economic profits that could be generated by the flow of travelers to the kingdom.
Indeed, recalls the daily, Mohammed VI gave his instructions to local actors of air and maritime transport in order to “practice affordable prices” to Moroccans living abroad.
“To allow millions of Moroccans around the world to see their families again, the king asked airlines and ferry companies to lower prices which were skyrocketing. It was welcome. The price of plane tickets has fallen sharply, from a thousand euros to 100 and 150 euros. The result: long queues for travel agencies and 120,000 bookings in 24 hours at Royal Air Maroc ”appreciates the NRC Handelsblad newspaper.
