During the month of August 2021 alone, the commercial passenger traffic of Morocco’s airports recovered 82% of 2019’s volume, which compares to other Mediterranean countries’ recovery rate, including France (70%), Spain (68%), and Turkey (76%), notes the Office.
This performance is explained, according to the Office, by the significant development of air traffic, following the Royal High Instructions that accompanied the launch of the 2021 Marhaba operation.
