India and Morocco on September 19, 2018 signed the revised Air Services Agreement enabling greater connectivity between the two countries through a modernised agreement. The delegation of the two countries has earlier met thrice wherein they have worked towards liberalisation of markets between the two countries and towards updating the existing Air Services Agreement.
Following the high level discussions, the two sides cleared the legal and technical difficulties and agreed to a modern new text for the Air Services Agreement. Thereafter, the respective governments approved the updated Air Services Agreement. The updated Air Services Agreement was formally signed during the visit of Mohammed Sajid, Moroccan Minister of Tourism, Air Transport, Handicraft and Social Economy. Union Minister of Commerce and Industry and Civil Aviation, Suresh Prabhu signed the agreement for the Indian side.
Indian designated carriers can operate any number of services to/from Casablanca, Rabat, Marrakesh, Agadir, Tangier and Fez in Morocco and similarly Morocco can operate any number of services to/from New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangaluru and Hyderabad. These developments in the Civil Aviation sector will enable the people of each country to travel to the other country, thus, leading to better economic and cultural ties.
