Morocco: Opening skies to air transport has created a synergy with tourism industry

6 November, 2017

Moroccan Minister of Tourism and Air Transport Mohamed Sajid said the development of the country's aviation industry "has created a synergy" with the tourism industry, with the Morocco-EU open skies agreement leading to the development of strong links from European cities to Moroccan tourism destinations (North Africa Post/The Financial Times, 05-Nov-2017). Mr Sajid said there is a focus on building links to southern Spain to build on "historic connections" between the two regions to create a "cultural corridor".
