Morocco to reopen airspace after two-month closure

BBC World Service

Morocco has said it will reopen its airspace to international passenger flights next month.

The North African country banned all incoming and outgoing international flights last November to try and limit the spread of the Omicron variant of coronavirus.

The Moroccan prime minister, Aziz Akhannouch, said that the ban would be lifted on 7 February.

Mr Akhannouch urged passengers to comply with Covid-19 guidelines and called on Moroccans to take their vaccine jabs.

Morocco has had just over 15,000 Covid fatalities so far.
