Morocco has decided to reopen the country’s airspace from 7 February, after the country had closed its borders on 29 November to curb the rapid spread of the Omicron coronavirus variant.
Since 29 November, no passenger flights to or from Morocco have been allowed. However, while the airspace will reopen soon, it is uncertain whether Belgian residents will be able to travel to the country again by then, reports the Belga News Agency.
“A committee is examining what measures should be taken at the border and what conditions should be imposed on travellers,” the government reported in a statement. More details on this are expected to follow.
Additionally, the Moroccan Government also announced that the state of emergency, which has been in place since 2020 because of the pandemic, will be extended by at least one month.
