In a statement made by the Moroccan COVID-19 Monitoring Committee, it was stated that flights to Morocco were suspended in order to protect the gains made in the fight against the pandemic, due to the rapid spread of the Omicron variant in Europe and Africa.
“Direct passenger flights to Morocco have been suspended for two weeks from Monday at 23:59,” the statement says.
It was stated that the situation will be evaluated regularly in order to take the necessary measures.
In a written statement from the Moroccan Inter-Ministerial Coordination Committee on November 26, it was stated that due to the Omicron variant of COVID-19, those coming from seven African countries, especially South Africa, would not be allowed to enter the country.
Many countries, including the UK, the US, Turkey, Canada, Germany, Japan, and the United Arab Emirates, imposed travel restrictions on some African countries, especially the Republic of South Africa, following the detection of the Omicron variant on November 25.
