British Airways to add Agadir and recommence Stansted services in 2024

British Airways has added Agadir, Morocco to its route network from London Gatwick. The four-times weekly flight service is set to commence operations on March 31, 2024.

The new addition means that Agadir becomes the second Moroccan destination on British Airways’ route map, joining Marrakech.

Soaking Up the Sun in Agadir

CEO of BA Euroflyer, Tom Stoddart, expresses excitement about this addition, highlighting Agadir’s allure as a coastal destination basking in 300 days of sunshine annually.

The region’s appeal extends beyond its beaches, offering golf courses, water sports, and cultural landmarks like the Agadir Kasbah.

Leisure customers, especially those seeking holiday packages, are expected to drive strong demand for this new route.

Two Cabin Options

British Airways ensures a delightful travel experience with a choice of two cabins on every Agadir flight: Club Europe (business class) and Euro Traveller (economy).

Euro Traveller customers can enjoy a complimentary drink and snack, while those in Club Europe are treated to lounge access, a full meal service with drinks from the bar, priority boarding, and additional baggage allowance.

London Stansted travelers are in for a premium treat with two cabin options: Club Europe (business class) and Euro Traveller (economy).
