The Moroccan Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Royal Moroccan Football Federation and Royal Air Maroc have set up a program of flights allowing supporters to fly to Russia to support the Atlas Lions in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Reports in the country suggest that flights between Casablanca Tangiers, Oujda, Marrakech and the cities of Saint Petersburg, Moscow and Kaliningrad are planned for fans to make their way to the global showpiece.


Morocco World News has it that a joint statement, RAM, the FRMF, and the Ministry of Youth and Sports indicated that in order to allow supporters to travel to Russia to encourage the national team, Royal Air Maroc will mobilize 13 aircrafts to allow nearly 2 500 passengers to attend the football spectacle.

According to the report, these additional flights will be specially programmed to allow the fans to attend the match and return home after the end of the tournament at a subsidised fixed price of MAD 5 000.

Meanwhile, the offer is exclusively for match ticket holders that went on sale on Tuesday, May 29 through the commercial agencies of the company and through the network of travel agencies.

Moreover, this program comes in addition to the initial offer presented by Royal Air Maroc last January, which covers approximately 3 000 tickets to Moscow and St. Petersburg, particularly the Russian capital.
