Agadir offers a great tourism experience year around with its unique beaches, mountains, golf resorts and excellent dining options"

Stephen Turner, commercial director for Manchester Airport, said: “It’s great news that Air Arabia Maroc will start flights to Agadir from Manchester this winter.

“Agadir is a great beach resort that also offers fantastic access to the Atlas Mountains.  This route will provide the 22million people in our catchment area with further choice on how to reach this exciting destination.”
