Domestic flights resumed on Thursday evening at the Agadir-Al Massira airport by a service of Royal Air Maroc (RAM) from Casablanca.
This first domestic flight comes within the framework of the reduction of the health restrictions adopted to stop the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic (Covid-19).
All health and precautionary measures have been taken to ensure that this journey, which had 39 passengers, was carried out in the best conditions in full compliance with the recommendations of the recovery plan put in place by the National Airports Office (ONDA), the guidelines of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the Airport Council International (ACI) Guidelines.
Following the example of other national airport infrastructures, the Agadir-Al Massira airport has ensured the implementation of this recovery plan which aims at protecting all airport users, including staff and passengers, and restoring confidence in this activity.
These provisions include, in particular, the social distancing of passengers, the sterilization operations of the airport hall and all their equipment, the distribution of awareness capsules to constantly remind airport users of the need to comply with health security rules, in addition to the installation of thermal cameras to detect, upon arrival, possible Covid-19 carriers.
The ONDA, RAM and national security teams, supported by Ministry of Health executives, were mobilized in large numbers in the airports to deal with any suspected case of Covid-19 and transfer it, if necessary, to the appropriate medical service.
It should be recalled that the Ministry of Tourism, Handicrafts, Air Transport and Social Economy had authorized, last Sunday, the national company to resume its domestic flights to the following destinations: Laayoune, Dakhla, Oujda and Agadir.
