Air Canada said it will operate a special flight on Saturday to repatriate Canadian citizens from Morocco.

The flight will be operated in collaboration with the Canadian government.

“Our teams are working around the clock with the Canadian Government and offering our global reach to do everything we can to repatriate as many Canadians as possible,” said the airline’s president, Calin Rovinescu.

The airline will operate the flight using a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft with 450 seats. The aircraft features 28 fully lie-flat business class seats, 24 recliner seats in the premium economy cabin, and 398 seats in coach.

Global Affairs Canada, the country’s ministry for foreign affairs, is coordinating local arrangements on the ground in Morocco.
