British Airways has announced new flights to Marrakech, Morocco from London Heathrow Terminal 5 from October 28, 2018.

The four times weekly service will depart on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The new service is in addition to the eight times weekly Gatwick to Marrakech flights.

Sean Doyle, British Airways’ Director of Network and Alliances, said: “Marrakech adds another exciting destination to our leisure network at Heathrow and is a fantastic starting point to explore Morocco; from trekking in the Atlas Mountains to discovering the amazing deserts and beaches and soaking up the atmosphere of the many medinas. Marrakech is one of the key tourism destinations in north Africa, so we’re excited to serve it from two of our London airports.”

British Airways has a number of increases in flight frequencies this winter including Prague (27 to 34 per week), Budapest (20 to 23 per week) and Barcelona (46 to 53 per week), as well as increasing the frequency to winter sun destinations such as Gibraltar (9 to 13 per week), Larnaca (7 to 10 per week) and Malaga (4 to 6 per week).
