A new alliance has been announced between Nirvana Travel & Tourism, Oman Air and YougoMorocco, which will work to boost the number of GCC travellers to Morocco.
The new partnership will also promote Oman Air’s direct flights from the GCC to Morocco, as well as the airline’s new fleet.
News of the alliance was announced at the currently running Arabian Travel Market in Dubai, during an exclusive press conference on April 23.
CEO, Nirvana Travel & Tourism, Alaa Al Ali declared: “The promotional campaign designed to bring awareness and promote touristic opportunities in Morocco, aims to encourage Gulf travellers and tourists to discover the enriching culture and landmarks of Morocco. Morocco has significantly developed its tourism and vacation experience making it an idyllic holiday destination for families and travellers from the Gulf region, which is also now easily accessible due to the direct flights offered by Oman Air.”
Meanwhile, senior vice president, international sales, Oman Air, Ihab Sorial noted: “As part of our continuous dynamic network expansion, we are pleased to announce a new Casablanca flight scheduled to begin operations from July 1 and will be the only direct service provided from the GCC to the destination.”
Last year, Morocco witnessed a six per cent rise in tourists, which amounted to 11 million in total. This year, a 10 per cent rise is expected.
“This growth has been attributed to the completion of Moroccan infrastructure and tourist projects. Its selection of experiences ranging from rich-traditional to urban-modern is perfect for families from the Gulf region,” explained general manager, Morocco National Tourism Office Middle East and Asia, Saddik Chakir.
