Airport Overview

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

Mohammed V International Airport is located 30km (19 miles) 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 seven 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.
