A total of 302 people, including babies, children, and the elderly, arrived at Tétouan Saniat R’mel airport on Saturday evening on two planes from Istanbul as part of the repatriation of stranded Moroccans abroad due to the pandemic.

The two planes landed with 152 and 150 Moroccan citizens, respectively, who constitute the fourth group of Moroccans repatriated from Turkey. These repatriation operations will continue in the coming days.

As part of the repatriation of Moroccans stranded abroad due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, Tétouan Saniat R’mel airport welcomed several flights with more than 1,000 Moroccans onboard who were stranded in Spain and Turkey, said airport manager Hassan Limouni.

All the necessary measures have been taken to ensure the progress of the operation in full compliance with the precautionary measures and the health protocol in force, and this with the participation of all stakeholders, said Limouni in a statement at MAP.
