Easyjet Flights to Essaouira

Does anyone know why EasyJet have stopped direct flights to Essaouira from Luton in the peak summer months, from late June to early September? We live just outside Essaouira and it's made it much more difficult for family and friends to visit in the summer as usual.

Hi DrLeilaE

Did you find out anymore on the non existent summer easyJet flights from Luton to Essaouria ?

I was wondering the exact same thing it’s a bit weird no return flights after 23rd June if I recall correctly.

I'm guessing that their popular summer routes (Spain etc) are busier and more in demand, so they use the Essaaouira planes for those routes instead....

Really sad. We were hoping to go...

#3 - Of course, you can still fly with RyanAir from Luton into Marrakech, which is only a three-hour coach ride from Essaouira.

The flights are not operating in July and August. There was a local campaign and they have reinstated flights for September and up to 24 October and then sadly cancelled indefinitely. Can I encourage anyone to email the Network Manager and CEO below and also comment on their FB page. The town is hoping they will reconsider! Taxis can also be prebooked for approx 60Euros from Marrakech airport to Essaouira

I am also very disappointed at this news - I go to Essa every Christmas, & the direct flight was a godsend. I've written to the CEOs as per the email above. I guess it's related to profit in some way, although the December flights were always jam-packed & not cheap, so they must have been making money from it....

Thank you very much for your note and for taking the time to contact us.

We do continually eview our network of routes to ensure they are profitable. While full flights are a great sign, it does not necessarily reflect the underlying financial performance of the route. Further, given aircraft are expensive, we need to fly our aircraft generally in markets that can support year round service. If a market is unable to support a year round operation, we typically need to redeploy the airplane to other opportunities that can sustain that level of service.

In the case of the Essaouira, we unfortunately were not able to sustain profitable year-round service, and as such have had to make the tough decision to stop service. This was compounded as the Moroccan Tourism authority chose to no longer promote this route as a priority route, which further led to degradation in the financial performance.

We know this makes the trip much more challenging, and appreciate that you will have to look at other options. That said, we hope you have enjoyed your flights on easyJet, and if we are flying to any other future destinations, we hope to see you onboard again.

Regards, Robert
