Does anyone know the time in Morocco? (Easyjet doesn’t!)
The Moroccan government has a habit of changing the clocks forward and back without much notice, catching airlines like Easyjet on the back foot and leaving passengers in the lurch! Paul Foulsham owner of Kasbah Angour has offered to help!
Comments Paul: “The Moroccan Government are rather fond of moving the clocks forward or back an hour without much notice which the Easyjet reservation system (among others) seems unable to keep up with.
“This has caused problems with passengers arriving at the airport at the wrong time, and missing flights (or getting there an hour too early), or arriving in MarrakechAirportwith no-one there to collect them, leaving them high and dry.
“For example in April, the clocks were put forward an hour, which was expected, but put them back again in late July so that Muslims observing the strict rules of Ramadan didn’t have to wait for so long for dusk to arrive (to eat).
“But the day after Ramadan in late August they caught the airlines out again by moving them forward.
“The problem is that the reservation section of Easyjet’s website doesn’t always correspond to the arrivals and departures section. This isn’t rocket science and one would think that a company the size of Easyjet would have sufficient contacts in Morocco to keep up with the clock changes.
“If Easyjet would like to employ me as their official Moroccan Time Consultant, they know where to find me. When British clocks go back by one hour on 28th October, Morocco will be on the same time as the UK.”
A four-night stay at Kasbah Angour in November costs from £218 pp (two sharing) in a standard room on a B&B basis.

Kasbah Angour is owned and managed by an Englishman, Paul Foulsham, who fell in love with Morocco whilst working in the country in the 1980s. He built the hotel from scratch over 5 years, employing local Berber builders and craftsmen.
