Airport activity is likely to be disrupted in the coming days throughout Moroccan airspace. The air traffic controllers have indeed decided to start a 15-day strike, with minimum service, from Saturday October 8, 2022.
During the announced walkout, the air traffic controllers will cease all provision of air traffic services in all Moroccan airports and airspaces,
However, air navigation control services will be provided, the statement continues, for the benefit of Royal Palace flights, State flights, military flights, medical flights, flights of a purely humanitarian nature and flights participating in search and rescue operations.
Contact airlines to confirm flight status if booked to fly via Moroccan airports Oct. 8-23. Arrive at the airport early to prevent your seat from being allocated to a standby passenger. Check local media or seek updated information from local contacts on protest activity at airports, as actions could occur unannounced.
