Morocco’s national airline said it was canceling all scheduled flights on Wednesday to fly fans to Doha for the World Cup semi-final, citing what it said was a decision by Qatari authorities.

“Following the latest restrictions imposed by the Qatari authorities, Royal Air Maroc regrets to inform customers of the cancellation of their flights operated by Qatar Airways,” the airline said in an emailed statement.

The Qatar government’s international media office did not respond to requests for comment.

Royal Air Maroc had previously said it would fly an additional 30 flights to help supporters get to Qatar for the semi-final game against France, but a travel agency source said only 14 had been scheduled.

The cancellation of the seven flights scheduled for Wednesday meant that Royal Air Maroc was only able to fly the seven flights on Tuesday, leaving fans who had already booked match tickets or hotel rooms unable to travel.

Royal Air Maroc said it would refund airline tickets and apologized to customers.

A Royal Air Maroc spokesman did not respond to a Reuters request for comment. Qatar Airways also did not respond to inquiries.
