In the Department of State’s March 19, 2020 COVID-19 Update, the Department of State advised U.S. citizens to avoid all international travel at this time due to the global impact of COVID-19. Moroccan airspace will close indefinitely on Sunday morning March 22. We strongly encourage U.S. citizens to depart Morocco.
The U.S. Mission to Morocco coordinated charter flights on March 20, and we are scheduling an additional flight on Saturday March 21 from Marrakech to the United States of America via London Heathrow. We do not know when civilian flights will resume in Morocco after this flight.
Saturday’s flight will include a Marrakech to London Heathrow leg and an onward connecting flight to one of 10 cities in the USA served by British Airways. The $1485 cost of these one-way tickets will include the flight to London AND to one of the 10 U.S. destinations below:
Miami (MIA), Los Angeles (LAX), Newark (EWR), Boston (BOS), Washington, DC Dulles (IAD), Chicago (ORD), New York City (JFK), Seattle (SEA), San Francisco (SFO), and Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW)
All passengers will need to reimburse the U.S. Government for the flight at a later date, and a promissory note for approximately $1485 which must be signed before boarding. No cash or credit card payments will be accepted. You will be responsible for any arrangements or costs (lodging, onward destination or local transportation, etc.) beyond your initial destination in the USA. Exact departure time and routing are subject to change.
