Casablanca-based Air Arabia Maroc is to begin flying between Manchester and Agadir from October with a twice-weekly A320 service on Thursdays and Sundays, making Manchester the only airport in the UK outside London served by the carrier.

 Group chief executive Adel Al Ali said: "We look forward to connecting Manchester with Agadir and we are confident this step will further cater to the needs of our growing customer base.”

Manchester Airport commercial director Stephen Turner added: “This route will provide the 22m people in our catchment area with further choice on how to reach this exciting destination.”

Air Arabia’s head office is at Sharjah International Airport, and the airline operates scheduled services from there to 51 destinations in the Middle East, North Africa, the Indian subcontinent, Central Asia and Europe. 

The group’s network also includes 28 destinations in nine countries from Casablanca, Fez, Nador and Tangier, 11 destinations in eight countries from Ras Al Khaimah, and six destinations in four countries from Alexandria. There is also a hub in Ras Al Khaimah and focus cities in Alexandria and Casablanca.
