Morocco will suspend all flights to and from France starting Nov. 26 due to COVID-19, the state news agency said on Thursday.

Morocco has imposed a vaccine pass for access to public places after it vaccinated over 50% of its population.

Morocco had previously canceled flights with Russia, the UK and the Netherlands over COVID-19 concerns.

Earlier Thursday, French daily Le Figaro reported that Easyjet had suspended all flights between France and Morocco until December due to new COVID-related entry restrictions in Morocco.

The paper reported that under new rules published Nov. 21, all passengers - unless they are Moroccan or foreign residents in Morocco - who are tested positive for COVID-19 upon arrival would have to return to where they came from on the airline's expense.
