Marrakech-Menara International Airport is one of the busiest airports in Morocco, coming in right behind Casablanca’s Mohammed V International Airport with roughly three million passengers processed each year. The facility is attractive and modern with a few cafes and some good duty-free shops, however it is often crowded and chaotic with long queues a common occurrence.
Flights to Marrakech-Menara International Airport come in from all over Europe, including major cities like London, Paris, Copenhagen, Madrid, Barcelona, Lisbon, Frankfurt, and Amsterdam; however, most long-haul flights connect via Casablanca.
As metion in previous post the airport is just situated 6km (4 miles) south-west of Marrakech.
