Airport Overview

Terminal Transfer | Getting into Town | Car Parking | Information Desks | Airport Facilities

Welcoming more than three million passengers each year, Marrakech-Menara International Airport 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 disorganised, 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.
