Airports in Marrakech

Menara International Airport (RAK)

Overview

Marrakech-Menara International Airport is among 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, Lisbon, Frankfurt, Barcelona and Amsterdam; however, many long-haul flights still connect via Casablanca.

The airport is situated four miles (6km) south-west of Marrakech.
