Airports in Morocco

Marrakesh Menara Airport

Welcoming more than 3 million passengers each year, Marrakech-Menara International Airport (RAK) serves the city of Marrakech, and is one of the busiest airports in Morocco after Casablanca’s Mohammed V International Airport. Flights to Marrakech-Menara International Airport are available from many cities around Europe, including Lisbon, Brussels, Frankfurt, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Paris, London, Copenhagen, Oslo and Milan. There are also local connections available via Casablanca if you're coming from elsewhere, such as the US or Canada.

Despite a modern appearance and beautiful facilities, the airport is often crowded and disorganized, with long queues for ticket counters and security. If you’re flying out of Marrakech, get to the airport well in advance of the flight to leave time for queuing and finding your gate, as notice boards are lacking and your ticket may not have this information.

Mohammed V

Mohammed V International Airport (CMN) is located 19 miles (30km) outside of Casablanca. The airport is the former site of a USAF Air Force base, and many locals still refer to it by that name: Nouasseur.

Processing more than 7 million passengers each year, flights to Mohammed V International Airport come from a number of destinations, including London, New York, Dubai, Cairo, Rome, Paris, Amsterdam, Montreal, Lisbon, Zurich, Istanbul, Brussels and Madrid. There are a few domestic routes within Morocco as well, however there are no direct flights to Mohammed V International Airport from Asia, Australia, or South America.

Make sure you pack a lot of patience, as the service at this airport is notoriously slow and unfriendly. The busiest airport in Morocco, the queues can be long and slow-moving, and many of the employees speak only Arabic.
