Starting today, Air Arabia Maroc will be operating weekly flights on Monday, Thursday and Saturday from Schiphol to Casablanca. This service will also fly on Tuesdays from 24 August. From next winter season at the end of October, Casablanca will be accessible from Schiphol seven days a week. The aircraft type to be used for these flights is the Airbus A320.
In August, Schiphol will also be welcoming Belavia, the national carrier of Belarus. From 10 August, Belavia will be flying three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, to Minsk. These flights will be operated using a Bombardier CRJ-100, Boeing 737-500 or Boeing 737-300. With the arrival of Belavia, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol can add another new destination to its worldwide network.
Ivo van der Vlis, Senior Director of Aviation Marketing, says: "We are pleased to be welcoming Air Arabia Maroc and Belavia since their operations here will extend the range of destinations offered by Schiphol to both Dutch and other holiday and business travellers. Minsk and Casablanca supplement nicely our extensive offering of destinations. Both of these airlines, with the destinations they fly to, will boost the network of main port Amsterdam Airport Schiphol."
