Estimated read time: 1'

A second direct commercial flight from Morocco to Israel took off Monday from the Tel Aviv airport to land in Casablanca, after more than 6 hours. On the same day, the El Al flight, a Boeing 737-8Z9, left the economic capital of the Kingdom for Israel.

According to journalist Seddik Khalfi, the plane «only stayed a little over an hour on the tarmac at the Casablanca airport». Thus, arriving at 5:22 p.m., it left at around 7:10 p.m., according to Flightradar24.

The same source adds that El Al would have operated this flight to repatriate ... a single passenger. An «Israeli businessman», whose identity was not revealed, but who would have left alone, in addition to the members of the crew of the plane, towards Tel Aviv.

«Apparently they did not find smaller than a Boeing 737-800 and its 200 seats for this medical repatriation», the journalist joked.

It should be recalled that Israeli airline El Al has already transported members of the Israeli-American delegation, which visited Morocco last December. The delegation included the former senior adviser of the White House, Jared Kushner and Israel’s national security advisor Meir Ben-Shabbat.
