The Moroccan government decided to cancel the changeover from summer to winter time, which was initially expected to begin on Sunday, October 28. Morocco will therefore continue to remain at UTC+0. The last-minute decision will have an impact on both domestic and international flight operations, many of which will operate an hour later than previously scheduled. School, work, and public transportation schedules may also be impacted.


The government cited energy savings in its decision to cancel the switch.
