Calling Scotland: The Road to Marrakech Is Open, Announce Octopus Travel

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 22, 2010) - The announcement of a new route from Marrakech to Edinburgh will herald greater visitors numbers than ever to the Morrocan city, according to online hotel company Octopus Travel.

Budget airline Ryanair has announced that from May 2010 they will be flying to Marrakech from Edinburgh – as well as other new routes to Faro and Paris. In addition, there is to be increased frequency on 16 other routes from Edinburgh and Prestwick.

Octopus Travel say the move is great news for travelers, with a spokesman commenting: "This new route is very exciting for us. Linking these two great cities at either end of Europe means further choice for holidaymakers wishing to see the best this continent has to offer."

Marrakech is fast becoming a hotspot for visitors, with new interest aroused ahead of the Sex and the City movie sequel, for which the city provides the setting. The new flights from Edinburgh promise to open Morocco up for millions more Britons.

Octopus Travel, online booking agents who offer Marrakech hotels, continued: "It's such an interesting place to visit, especially for a city break. There's a huge sense of satisfaction strolling around the souks, checking out the local crafts and cloths. It's great news for the tourist industry that Marrakech has been opened up to new markets."
