easyJet announces new connections to the exotic Moroccan capital of Rabat

Low-cost airline easyJet will be adding two weekly flights from Nice to the “Royal City” of Rabat from November; the perfect way to curb the winter blues! 

Summer still has its grip on the Côte d’Azur, but soon enough, the days will be getting shorter and the temperatures will start to fall.  

To help combat any winter blues, easyJet has announced that it will be running two new weekly flights from Nice to Rabat beginning 1st November and continuing through to the end of March 2024.  


The “Royal City” of Rabat will be an exclusive destination from Nice for the airline. While others are servicing Marrakech, Casablanca and Fez, easyJet is the sole airline flying to the capital and the home of the Moroccan royal family. 


Though less visited than its more well-known cousins, Rabat, as the capital city and royal seat, has some fabulous sites to see. Some of the can’t-miss attractions include the 12th century Oudaya Kasbah, originally used as a fortress to stop invaders. Today it houses a museum, lovely gardens and a café.  

A trip to a crypt may sound bizarre, but the Mausoleum of Mohammed V is one of Rabat’s top draws. He was the first Moroccan king after declaring independence from France and is something of a hero to the people. Though Mohammed gets the starring role here, his equally famous son, Hassan II, is also buried here.  

No visit would be complete without a wander through the medina, or historic city centre. Visit the narrow streets lined with stunning architecture, lively markets and some of the best restaurants in the city for a proper immersion into life in Rabat.  

The Great Mosque of Salé is also well worth a look in. Located in Rabat’s sister city, Salé, it boasts being the third biggest and second oldest mosque in the country.  The town itself is about as authentic as it gets, in terms of Moroccan life, and is located just across the Bou Regreg river from Rabat.
