Marrakesh has been a destination many people have asked for and we are happy to now be in a position to say that ‘Yes, you Morro-can fly from Edinburgh! We are always looking to widen our connections and ensure Edinburgh and Scotland is targeting sustainable growth opportunities as we continue our recovery. Retaining our connectivity is so important and we have to be flexible in our approach to keep Scotland competitive and offer choice for both leisure and business markets.

The new route takes the total number of new Ryanair routes from Edinburgh for 2021 to 9.

The announcement comes after Ryanair recently added flights from Edinburgh to Paris, Madrid and Palermo, all of which are scheduled to begin in November 2021.
