Casablanca Airport Mini Guide
Mohammed V International Airport
The airport has been completely renovated during recent years and is now a thriving modern transport centre. It was originally built by the United States
forces in 1943 as an auxiliary airfield, now it has two terminals and handles over 7 million passengers a year to Europe and other African countries, the main airline being Royal Air Maroc.
Travelling on Business?
The airport has a small business centre for use by passengers, the nearby Atlas Airport Hotel also has business facilities and a meeting room should you need to make use of it.
Travelling with Children?
There is a small children's play area in the airport and lots of cafes and restaurants to suit all tastes. There is also a hotel in the transit area of Terminal 2, catering especially for passengers in transit. So should you be in the airport on a stopover and need a little more than just a seat in a lounge, especially if you've got young children, treat yourself to a room.
As you may expect from a recently renovated airport, there are excellent disabled facilities and if you need any further assistance just use any of the telephones dotted around the terminal. There are also plenty of ATMs and banks should you need more local currency and a post office for that letter that you forgot before you left. Plus of course, the obligatory duty free shops.
Getting Away from the Airport
There are several car hire companies represented in the airport arrivals hall, both international and local. The airport is situated 30km to the south east of Casablanca on the road to Marrakech
, so hiring a car is a good way of getting into the city and also getting around the area during your stay. As most people know the city was immortalised in the Humphrey Bogart film of the same name, so it would be shame not to at least try to find Sam's Bar!
