Broadening its horizons and adding yet another continent to its portfolio, Air Canada has announced that in the summer of 2016 it will be adopting a service to Casablanca in Morocco.
Enthusing on the news was president, passenger airlines, Air Canada, Benjamin Smith: “Air Canada is solidifying its position among leading global carriers by becoming one of only a dozen airlines flying to six continents with the announcement of non-stop service to Casablanca, our first destination in Africa.
