Menara International Airport (RAK)

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.

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, most long-haul flights connect via Casablanca.
