Ryanair’s first African bases – Fez and Marrakech

by Matt Falcus

Ryanair MarrakechNews has been popping up today that Ryanair will open its first non-European bases (if you don’t count the Canary Islands) with the addition of Fez and Marrakech in Morocco.

The airline already has extensive operations into both of these airports, and is now likely to add a few more routes and base a couple of Boeing 737-800s at each airport to offer greater frequencies.

In the case of Marrakech, Ryanair is already the dominant carrier at the airport, ahead of Royal Air Maroc and other leisure/low cost carriers. I actually flew there with Ryanair last year (trip report here).

It is speculated that the airline will begin domestic flights within Morocco at the launch of these bases later this year.
