RABAT (AFP) -Ryanair, Europe’s largest no-frills carrier, says it has been obliged to postpone the introduction of new flights between European and Moroccan destinations because of EU regulation delays.

It said that flights from Marseille and Frankfurt to Fes, Marrakesh and Oujda would not now start until December 1, though services from Luton, near London, to Fes and Marrakesh, would begin as planned next month.

Ryanair blamed the decision of the European Union to put off until November 17 the signing of an agreement to create a common European airspace which will include Morocco.

It said passengers who had booked seats for before December 1 would be entitled to a ticket exchange or refund.

The company said the flights from Britain came under a separate accord by London and Rabat.
