If only! The short answer is NO... primarily because Morocco isn't in the EU so the interests of the national airlines and things like that are called into question, so it might be very hard to secure rights on routes, etc., whereas any airline can fly anywhere within the EU (sometimes subject to additional licences, ie to fly within the UK or Italy). Blah, blah. It's a shame, but I REALLY don't see it happening. The airfares to Morocco are normally pretty damn high too.

Air Berlin is a charter airline which also does some low-cost flights, so it isn't a true low-cost carrier.

FR and U2, both very important European airlines, concentrate on flying from, to and within EU countries - or countries, like Norway, which aren't in the EU but yet have policies in place which enable the freedom of movement, etc.

The subsidiary of Royal Air Maroc called "Atlas Blue " has started flights between some European cities and Morocco. They use RAM aircraft but special livery and have attractive prices

LCCs don't have the right to fly into Casablanca which is a business destination. A subsidiary of RAM, has started low-cost flights out of Marrakech to Lyon and maybe other points. It is a start but it's still shy !!! Things could be different if CMN becomes a deregulated destination; then FR,U2 or any other LCC could think of even if it's not a EU country and even if nationals need visas to go to Europe. German LCCs are already flying to Turkey, Russia,...

@Pe@rson - AB is more than a charter airline doing some low cost flying:

out of curiosity put the mouse on berlin  Laugh out loud ....

I went to Morocco via Gibraltar on Monarch Airlines from LTN. Algeciras, the principal ferry port to Tangier, Morocco is only a short taxi ride away from Gibraltar. Flying via Malaga will take you a lot longer.

Why doesn't that make it possible for a low-cost carrier to fly there? That's got nothing to do with it - the fact is that countries outside the EU regulate routes and sometimes block airlines which would otherwise potentially damage national airlines. So it's still a little old-fashioned.

I totally agree with you Pe@rson. In the case of Tunisia, even a full service airline like Emirates could be blocked.
