Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have announced the launch of scheduled flights and holidays from Glasgow Airport to Morocco for the first time.
As of October 2024 the UK’s largest tour operator and third largest airline will operate to two destinations in Morocco – Agadir (year-round) and Marrakech – from Glasgow Airport. The launch of flights, city breaks and holidays to Marrakech makes this an exclusive route from Glasgow Airport.
The companies will operate up to three weekly flights to Morocco from the airport, commencing from October 2024. Customers travelling to Morocco with Jet2holidays and Jet2CityBreaks will be able to choose from approximately 50 4-5 star hotels across Marrakech city, the wider Marrakech area and Agadir.
The launch gives customers and independent travel agents fantastic choice when it comes to booking a Morocco holiday, whether it’s a bucket list getaway, city break or beach holiday.
The company will operate two weekly flights to Marrakech between 4th November 2024 and 28th April 2025. The company will also operate weekly flights from 3rd October to 14th November 2025.
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have also launched year-round flights and holidays from Glasgow Airport to Agadir, which takes the crown as Morocco’s most popular pick for a beach getaway. Located on the west coast of Morocco, Agadir’s biggest draw is a 9km-long stretch of golden sand which is dotted with hotels, waterparks and a selection of incredible bars and restaurants.
As well as enjoying the sand and surf, holidaymakers can discover Agadir and its souks, minarets and tea cafes. Customers can also venture to the laidback fishing village of Taghazout or the traditional Immi Ouaddar.
Jet2 will operate weekly flights from Glasgow Airport to Agadir from 3rd November 2024 right through to 12th November 2025, with two weekly services operating at times during April and October 2025.
Customers can choose from almost 20 hotels in Agadir with Jet2holidays, with a wide selection of quality hotels available, mostly 4-star and above.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “We are thrilled to be giving customers and independent travel agents even more choice from Glasgow Airport thanks to the launch of Morocco as a brand-new destination. With year-round availability to the magical destination of Agadir, as well as an exclusive route to Marrakech, we are giving holidaymakers access to two famous holiday hotspots. We are incredibly excited about these new destinations, and we know how immensely popular they will be with our customers.”
He added: “This latest expansion demonstrates the strength of our growing business, and it comes on the back of customers and independent travel agents across the region choosing to travel with us time and time again. Our award-winning proposition clearly continues to delight holidaymakers and we look forward to welcoming even more customers onboard thanks to the launch of these two brand-new destinations.”
Christopher Tibbett, Head of Airline Relations and Marketing for Glasgow Airport, said: “We are thrilled to welcome this duo of destinations in Morocco and excited to see Jet2.com and Jet2holidays continue to grow their wide range of beach and city choices from Glasgow Airport.
“Near the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, Agadir will promise holidaymakers glorious year-round sunshine, whilst wondering through the spice markets of Marrakech’s souks will offer a truly unique city-break experience for our passengers.”20
