The Belgian airline, Jetairfly, will be expanding its flight destinations to and from Eindhoven Airport. During the winter flight schedule, the airline will also be flying to and from Oujda, Morocco. This will be the second Eindhoven’s flight destination. At the end of 2014, the airline had launched a winter flight schedule to the seaside resort town, Nador in Morocco.
Jetairfly, part of "the world of TUI", the largest tourism group worldwide, will be starting with the new route on 1 November, 2016. It will be flying twice a week to the new destination, using a Boeing 737-700 aircraft, containing 148 seats. The flights will take place on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
Oujda is located on the Northeastern part of Morocco; about fifteen kilometers from the Algerian border. The commercial city consists of 450,000 inhabitants and is the home base of the Technopole technological centre. Tourists travel to the city because of its various souks and its old Medina, (an old Arab quarter in a North African City), containing a big Mosque.
