Morocco Direct From LBA

Scheduled flights to Morocco out of Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA), are to be launched by Jet2 next year.

The UK’s largest tour operator and third largest airline - jet2 and Jet2holidays - will operate year-round to the sunshine destination of Agadir, located on Morocco’s west coast,

The exclusive LBA route launches next October.

Agadir takes the crown as Morocco’s most popular pick for a beach getaway with a 9km-long stretch of golden sand which is dotted with hotels, waterparks and a selection of bars and restaurants.

As well as enjoying the sand and surf, holidaymakers can discover Agadir and its souks, minarets and tea cafes. Customers can also venture to the laidback fishing village of Taghazout or the traditional Immi Ouaddar.

Jet2 will operate year-round flights with weekly Thursday flights operating until 13th November 2025. Customers can choose from almost 20 hotels in Agadir with Jet2holidays, with a wide selection of quality hotels available, mostly 4-star and above.

Nicola McMullen, Aviation Director at Leeds Bradford Airport, said:
“We’re thrilled to add Agadir to our growing roster of amazing destinations.

"This is the first time that we’ve hosted flights to Morocco, with holidaymakers from Yorkshire and beyond now benefitting from easy access to Agadir’s glorious golden Atlantic beaches, colourful souks and ancient sites and museums. We look forward to welcoming Africa-bound passengers next year.”
