Spanish carrier Iberia will fly twice-weekly between Madrid and the Moroccan capital Rabat from July 1, and says timings will suit passengers connecting in Madrid from short-haul destinations including London.
The flights will depart Madrid on Monday at 1140 and Friday at 1300, arriving in Rabat at 1210 and 1330 respectively. The return leg will leave Morocco at 1250 on Monday and 1430 on Friday, landing back in Madrid at 1515 and 1655 respectively.
The new route, served by A320 aircraft in a two-class configuration, is Iberia’s fourth destination in Morocco after Casablanca, Marrakech, and Tangier.
There are currently no direct, non-stop flights between London and Rabat, and Iberia says that the new flights “are timed for the convenience of passengers arriving in Madrid from Iberia’s 54 short- and medium-haul destinations, including Berlin, Dusseldorf, Lisbon, London, Milan, Moscow, Paris and Rome”.
