Morocco Israel flight: these are the connections

morocco israel flight

   Traveling directly between Israel and Morocco was, until recently, a chimera. But it is now a reality thanks to two routes that connect the main cities of both countries. That is precisely what we tell you in this post: take note of the Morocco Israel flight, especially if you plan to organize a combined circuit between the two countries.

Flights Israel Morocco: what routes are available?

   There are currently two Israel-Morocco non-stop flights. They are the following routes:

  • Tel Aviv – Casablanca
  • Tel Aviv – Marrakech
  • Flights Tel Aviv – Marrakech

   Connects the main economic and financial city of Israel (Ben Gurion International Airport, TLV) with the most important tourist city in Morocco (Menara International Airport, RAK). For this reason, many travelers use this route to travel around Morocco, starting their circuit in the so-called ‘Red City’.

   The airline in charge of chartering these flights is Arkia, the second airline of Israel, and in some cases EL AL, which is the Israeli national airline. The flight duration is approximately 6 hours and 15 minutes. Normally, this is the less expensive of the two Morocco Israel flight.

  • Flights Tel Aviv – Casablanca

   Connects Ben Gurion International Airport (TLV) with the most populous city in Morocco (Mohammed V International Airport, CMN). Most of the passengers who use this route do so for business reasons, as Casablanca is about 90 km away from Rabat, the capital.

   The company in charge of this route is Royal Air Maroc. The approximate flight time is 5 hours and 50 minutes.

Much more than a simple air connection

    The Morocco Israel flight are much more than just two direct air routes: they represent the best demonstration of the reestablishment of relations between the two countries. And above all, they are an example of the relatively good relationship between Moroccans and Jews, as we told you in this other post about Jews in Morocco.

    Let’s remember that Morocco was a land of welcome for the Spanish Sephardim expelled from the Iberian Peninsula in the 14th and 15th centuries and that some prominent members of the government of the Alawite kings are often Jews.

   Although the Moroccan Jewish population today is much smaller than it was decades ago, mainly as a result of the aliyah following the creation of the state of Israel, it is still estimated that 5,000 still live in the country, especially in Casablanca.

   Finally, it should be remembered that air connections are always subject to change: they are sometimes opened, closed or resumed depending on a wide variety of factors, such as diplomatic conflicts or health emergencies (coronavirus, for example). Therefore, we recommend you to check thoroughly if the flights between Israel and Morocco we talked about in this post are still valid at the time of your reading. And if you need any other help with your trip, do not hesitate to contact Tourism Morocco.
