Airports in Marrakech

The airport itself is about ten kilometers from the city center, making the trip by car a short 15-minute ride. There aren’t any other airports in Marrakech, so you don’t have to worry about finding out which airport you’ll be arriving at or leaving from.

 Arriving there:

  •  You will need an embarkation card before arriving at the queue for passport control, so make sure you have a pen on you.
  • There are money-changing outlets in the Arrival halls where you can exchange your money.
  • There is one ATM in Terminal 1 and one in Terminal 2.
  • You can purchase a SIM card in a booth at the arrival hall.

Transportation from the airport:

There are two ways you can get from the Marrakech airport to downtown – either by bus or by taxis.  

  •  Taxis - The taxi “journey” starts before you even leave the airport. You’ll find hoards of taxi companies coming up to you trying to get you to ride with them – but do not surrender yet! These companies usually have much higher rates and simply walking outside of the airport to the parked taxis outside gives you an instantly lower price.
  • By Bus - For a fun trip try taking a bus! It will give you a nice tour around the city as the journey goes through multiple stops, giving you a quick overview of the city. The bus service (line 19) has hourly departures from 6.30 a.m to 11:30 p.m so if you’re arriving really late at night or early in the morning do not depend on the bus.
  • Extra: Pick up and airport transfer services - You can also pre-book a private bus transfer in advance to avoid the hassle of negotiating, getting on buses, or finding a way to get from the Marrakech airport to downtown. Your driver will immediately pick you up after you’ve passed customs and will take care of everything from that moment onwards.

Best of Marrakech: Highlights and Hidden Gems tour

Yesterday we booked a tour to discover Marrakesch with Khalil and we had an amazing time! Khalil was very friendly and made us feel at our ease right away! During the tour he gives interesting information about the architecture, history and culture of Marrakech. The tour itself existed of both the must sees of Marrakech, such as the Bahia palace and the jewish quarter, as well as hidden gems that we would never have discovered on our own. We also had the chance to “taste” a bit of the culture by visiting a local bakery and trying their delicious bread and through a cup of mint tea while enjoying the view of Marrakech on the rooftop terrace. For us it was the best way to get to know the city as it is our frist trip to Marrakech and we would definitely recommend Khalil to everyone back home! Thanks again Khalil for making us feel welcome in Marrakech!
