The frequent schedule aims to cater to a wide range of travelers, including tourists and business professionals.
According to the company, the decision to launch this route aligns with Iberia Express’s strategic plan to bolster its international presence.
Iberia Express is set to serve a total of 22 destinations during the upcoming winter season of 2023-2024.

The increased number of flights to Marrakech, Morocco’s world-class tourism hub, is set to boost the city’s appeal to tourists from Europe as flight prices become more competitive.
This year, Morocco’s southern perl saw a remarkable increase in the number of tourists. According to data from Marrakech’s Regional Tourism Delegation, the influx of tourists rose by 63% at the end of the first five months of this year compared to 2019.
