Event

On the evening (local time) of Tuesday, August 14, Royal Air Maroc and the Moroccan Pilots Association (AMPL) released a joint statement announcing that an agreement has been reached between the two organizations. The agreement is expected to end the flight disruptions that have been ongoing since July 20. According to the statement, both sides are determined to work together to address the issues and working conditions of the pilots. Residual disruptions are possible in the coming days.

Context

Over 200 flights were canceled since July 20 due to the impasse in negotiations. Royal Air Maroc accused the pilots of striking, while the AMPL insisted that pilots were simply refusing to work on their days off. Pilots claimed that they were working longer than their contracted hours and demanded a salary reevaluation.

Advice

Travelers are advised to confirm the status of their flights prior to departure for the airport and to contact the airline for more information.
