Cheap Flights to Tangier, Morocco
After the withdrawal of British Airways from its Heathrow – Tangier route in 2005, there are no more direct flights to Tangier operating from the UK. However, there are a number of connecting options and thankfully, you can still get reasonably cheap flights to Tangier. You have obviously to put up with the stopover in the connecting airport for a few hours.
First, Royal Air Maroc flies to Tangier from London Heathrow, stopping at Casablanca, Morocco’s airline hub. After running a few enquiries through their website, the cheapest round-trip we could come up with was £232 (including taxes).
The other option is to transit through European airports, mainly Paris and Madrid which have daily flights to Tangier. This will give you a better chance of finding cheap flights to Tangier, through low-cost carriers such as EasyJet andIberia, as well as Royal Air Maroc . The airliners fly to Tangier from Madrid Barajas Airport for as low as £110.

An Internet tool I greatly recommend to use is screen scrappers. These are sites that will super shop around on normal airlines, budget airlines and flight-broker websites to find you the cheapest flights to your destination. To find cheap flights to Tangier, my top recommendation goes to:
- Kayak: This is a real gem, with an easy to use interface and a great range of options. Simply enter your departure airport and your destination (in our case Tangier), and Kayak will report back all available flights. You can search by one-way, round-trip, weekend or combine with a hotel. On the search results, you can compare the fares on different dates, see the details of flights or go directly to the low-cost carrier.
- TravelSupermarket: The search results are rather clumsy to my liking, but you will find this tool a great addition to Kayak. TravelSupermarket not only covers main and budget airlines, but also flight-brokers – companies offering discounts and special offers direct from the airlines.
