Flight in to Morocco

Flight in to Morocco

I plan on flying into Casablanca, and then catching another flight into Marrakech. These two flights are booked separately with different airlines (Delta coming into Casablanca, Royal Air into Marrakech).

How much time do you think it will take to switch planes? Will I have to go through customs in Casablanca, or will I do that in Marrakech?

If I did have to go through customs in Casablanca, then would that mean that I cannot have my luggage moved to the final destination without re-checking in?

I'm wondering if I can accomplish this in two hours. Otherwise, I'll be getting in to Marrakech after dark, which doesn't seem ideal.

I have not done exactly what you're doing, but 2 hours is usually enough...although sometimes it cuts a little close, depending on lines etc. And you will have to go through customs - and although Royal Air Maroc is Delta affiliate, since its a different ticket, you will have to pick up and recheck your bags. The Casa airport is not too huge, so 2 hours should be okay for the transfer.

Also, I'm not sure if you were aware, but you can also catch the train to Marrakech right from the Casa airport, and the train stops right in the heart of Marrakech. The airport train would actually take you the main Casa train station, where you'd catch the direct line to Marrakech (and its a small station so you would maybe just walk over 1 platform or so to the Marrakech train line.) The train cost a few dollars, and takes about 3 hours travel time, but may ultimately get you there faster than the plane.

Either way, good luck!

I did so recently, came to Casa with Air France and flew to Ouarzazate with RAM so I had to check out and check in again. And I had for me approx 2 hours, everything was going only good. I had gone through the customs in Casa.

Thanks for the advice.

Haven't booked the flight from Casablanca yet.

I'm hearing a good case for the train. Can I book in advance? If so, can I do it online? Are schedules available online?

My number one goal is to avoid getting stuck in the Casablanca airport for an extended period of time.
