Morocco launches 30 extra flights to jet fans to Qatar 2022 World Cup
Morocco’s national airline has reinforced with 30 extra return flights to jet jubilant fans to Qatar for Wednesday’s historic World Cup semi-final against France.
This was announced in a statement yesterday.
Fans had earlier complained online of hiccups at an overcrowded airport in Casablanca, Morocco’s economic capital, ahead of the Portugal clash. Coach Walid Regragui, who took up the job just three months before the start of the tournament, has repeatedly called Moroccan supporters “the 12th member of the team.”
