Airports in Morocco

Casablanca Mohammed V Airport (CMN)

Overview

The biggest airport in Morocco, Mohammed V International Airport (also known as Nouaceur Airport) is situated 19 miles (30km) outside of Casablanca. The facility serves more than seven million passengers each year, and is the hub for Morocco's flag carrier Royal Air Maroc, as well as Jet4you, Air Arabia Maroc and Regional Airlines.

Flights to Mohammed V International Airport come in from destinations all over the world, including New York, Montreal, Dubai, Cairo, Istanbul, Zurich, Lisbon, Amsterdam, Rome, Paris and London; however, there are currently no direct flights to Mohammed V International Airport from South America, Asia or Oceania.

The airport itself has a notorious reputation for slow-moving queues and unfriendly service, and most staff members speak only Arabic. Passengers should allow plenty of time for connections, and use that time to browse the shops and restaurants, or take advantage of the wifi available in the terminal.

Location

The airport is situated 16 miles (25km) south of Casablanca.

Getting to the city

Trains leave the airport for Casa-Voyageurs station every hour between 6:50am and midnight, and cost MAD50; the trip takes roughly 35 minutes. Most hotels will arrange airport transfers, either complimentary or for a fee.

Time
