On Thursday (October 26, 2023), Air Transat announced the introduction of new year-round nonstop service between Montreal and Marrakech in Morocco.

In Thursday’s announcement, Transat’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Annick Guérard, said,

“We are delighted to make this announcement today, as it marks a milestone in the evolution of our company. With the addition of Marrakech to our portfolio of transatlantic destinations, the first in Africa, we are consolidating the diversification of our network. This exclusive, year-round service will meet the growing demand, generated by the significant presence of the Moroccan community in Montreal and the undeniable tourist appeal of Marrakech.”

Also commenting on the new route to Marrakech, the Moroccan National Tourism Office’s CEO, El Fakir, added,

“Canada, and more specifically Quebec, is a market of major importance for Morocco. The Montreal-Marrakech with our partner Air Transat is the first non-stop connection to Marrakech from North America. It will open up a wide range of possibilities for all travelers, both in the ochre city and also providing access to the seaside resorts of Essaouira, Agadir, Taghazout, and tours in the southern part of Morocco.”

“ADM Aéroports de Montréal is delighted to add Marrakech, a French-speaking city and a must-see tourist destination, to its range of transatlantic destinations. Thanks to this new and fifth non-stop connection to the African continent, we now reach Morocco through two major entry points, to the great benefit of the large Moroccan community in Greater Montreal, but also for all Québec travellers. We would like to thank all the Air Transat teams involved in the development of this route, which will enable YUL to strengthen its position as an international hub.”
