  On the plane to Marrakech
by sue_stone

We flew to Marrakech with British Airways from London Gatwick (British Airways also fly to Marrakech from Heathrow). The flight took around 3 hours. On our return flight, the plane went via Casablanca, where it stopped for about 45 minutes for re-fuelling and to take on more passengers (while we remained on the plane). This made our return journey about 5 hours all up.

Other airlines that fly from the UK to Marrakech include Ryanair from London Luton, Easyjet and Atlas Blue from London Gatwick and Royal Air Maroc from London Heathrow.

Marrakech Menara airport is pretty basic and the service is very slow....we almost missed our flight! After queuing for ages to check in, then had to wait forever to get through the passport the time we got to the queue for hand luggage scanning we had 10 minutes till our flight left - luckily we managed to jump to the head of the queue, then had to run to the gate, and were last on the plane!
