How to get to | Morocco

This is part of a series of blog entries on how to get to countries and places. Here is a link to the index. I plan to eventually cover every country and some other places. If you have a request for a particular country or place please use the email me link at top right, or leave a comment.

Visitors to Morocco arrive mainly by ferry from Gibraltar and Algeciras to Tangier, or by air. Land border crossings are limited to Mauritania - the border with Algeria is closed. There are lots of airlines flying to Morocco (to Casablanca unless otherwise stated) - including:

  • Star Alliance - EgyptAir, Lufthansa, Swiss, TAP, Turkish
  • Oneworld - Iberia (also to Marrakech and Tangier)
  • Sky Team - Air France, Alitalia
  • Other selected - Emirates, most European low cost airlines (mostly to Agadir and Marrakech)

There are no longhaul flights to or from Morocco.

TIP On some fares/air passes/around the world fares Morocco is treated as being part of Europe, which may reduce costs.

TIP There are lots of low cost airlines flying to Morocco from within Europe (mainly UK, France, Spain and Germany).

TIP If fares to Morocco are too high, check out flights to southern Spain (eg Malaga), from which it is an easy bus and ferry ride to Morocco. The are many low cost airlines flying to Southern Spain from elsewhere in Europe.
