Flights from Moscow to Agadir on 9, 12 and 16 October, which according to the original plans have to complete the summer charter chain of ANEX Tour to Morocco, canceled. This information was confirmed in the press service of the tour operator, explaining the company's decision to optimize the flight program. “Tourists who have already booked tours for the dates will be offered alternative destinations or cancellation with a refund of money”, - assured the Head of PR-department of ANEX Tour Alain Khitrova. Thus, the last flight to Agadir will be performed on October 5.
According to Arthur Muradyan, the General Director of Space Travel tour operator, the charters to Morocco usually finish flight program by the end of September, so the ANEX Tour decision of optimization is justified - the "high" season in October is already over.
As for the current sales figures, the experts of the market say: the demand for Morocco is not high. This conclusion is confirmed by the tariffs of tour operators in online booking systems. According to Arthur Muradyan, the interest of tourists to travel to Morocco is constrained by opened Turkish direction. In addition, part of the tourist flow to Morocco is shifted to more budgetary Tunisia.
The flights from Moscow to Agadir in the current season are represented by the charter chain of ANEX Tour by Azur Air flights. The flights are performed twice a week. In addition, there are regular flights of Moroccan air carrier Royal Air Maroc - three times a week. These flights are declared as direct, but in practice they are carried out with landing in Casablanca.
