British Airways launches Marrakech service from London Heathrow.
BA has announced it will be adding a new four flights a week service from Terminal 5 to popular Marrakech from October 28, 2018. The new service will operate throughout the winter season every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday offering a weekend break in the sun.
The Heathrow service will be in addition to British Airway’s existing eight times a week service from London Gatwick.
Sean Doyle, British Airways’ Director of Network and Alliances, said: “Marrakech adds another exciting destination to our leisure network at Heathrow and is a fantastic starting point to explore Morocco; from trekking in the Atlas Mountains to discovering the amazing deserts and beaches and soaking up the atmosphere of the many medinas. Marrakech is one of the key tourism destinations in North Africa, so we’re excited to serve it from two of our London airports.”
British Airways launches Marrakech service return fares are from £132 in Euro Traveller and £332 in Club Europe.
The airline is also increasing winter flights to other city break destinations from Heathrow to Prague, Budapest, Barcelona, Gibraltar, Larnaca and Malaga.
