The passengers took COVID-19 tests at Tangier Ibn Battouta airport, in accordance with the health protocol in force.

Several students said that the procedures put in place at the airports of departure (Kiev-Boryspil) and arrival (Tangier Ibn Battouta) took place smoothly, noting that flight conditions were “good”.

On Saturday last week, the Moroccan embassy in Kyiv issued a communique urging citizens in Ukraine to return to Morocco amid reports of an imminent conflict between Kyiv and Moscow.

After the announcement, Air Arabia and Royal Air Maroc announced special repatriation flights.

Royal Air Maroc will also repatriate Moroccans from Ukraine through two flights.
