Miami Getting Nonstop Flights To Casablanca, Morocco In 2019

The first ever regularly scheduled nonstop flights between Miami International Airport and Casablanca could begin next year, pending government approval.

Royal Air Maroc filed an application last week with the US Department of Transportation to begin the service. Attorneys for the airline are asking for approval “as soon as possible,” in order to be able to begin sales and marketing.

The flight would be operated by a Boeing 787, with service to begin in April 2019.

In North America, only Montreal, New York JFK, and Washington Dulles currently are served by Royal Air Maroc, so the new Miami service would be the longest transatlantic flights for the airline.

Royal Air Maroc’s 787 offers lie-flat seats in business class. Passengers will likely be able to connect to the airline’s destinations throughout Europe.

It should be noted that this will be MIA’s only service to Africa.

My grandfather was from Fez Morocco. I have never been there but now I might think about going. I imagine it is a 7 or 8 hour flight, not bad all things considered.

Interesting, I wonder why it’s that long, I go from Miami to Madrid a few times a year and it is usually 8 and a half hours going and a little over 9 hours coming back.

It is that long because the circumference of the earth gets greater as you get closer to the equator.

It should take less than Miami to Madrid. Notice that it gives you the same time going back.

There is a mistake in the article : longest transatlantic RAM flight goes to Sao Paulo (second longest is Rio de Janeiro)
