Portuguese airline, TAP, is to offer cheap flights to Morocco this winter.

The carrier will launch flights from Lisbon to Casablanca in October, taking the number of African destinations served by TAP up to nine.

Flights to Bissau, Dakar, Luanda, Maputo, Johannesburg, Sal, Praia and Sao Tome already operate from TAP’s European bases.

TAP explained that the new flights to Casablanca are a result of increased passenger demand and analysis of popular destinations.

"The choice of Casablanca, one of the largest and most important Moroccan cities was the result of rigorous market analysis and will enable TAP to diversity its activities and thus meet market demand and the need to find new destinations," the airline said in a statement.

Flights to Africa have proved popular for TAP, with more than 224,000 passengers flying from Portugal to the continent since services began.

Demand for flights to Bissau saw the airline introduce a third weekly service from Lisbon to the capital city of Guinea-Bissau last month.
