A few tips about arriving & leaving Fes by plane ! Dont forget to get some dirhams from an ATM or the bureau de change in the main arrivals hall, so that you have money for the taxi or bus. The rate is not worse than you will get in the city. The airport shuttle bus does not seem to operate any more, altho the adverts are still up. If you want to get the bus, you need to cross the car park to the main road & catch a local bus. A taxi costs 150 dirhams (equivalent to 15 euros). The ideal if you are alone, is to find someone to share. The cost will be the same. You may need to get a petit taxi from where the grand taxi drops you off, but that will be 10 to 15 dirhams, depending on the distance. I paid 15 dirhams from the Ville Nouvelle to the far side of the Medina. If you are happy to pay 150 dirhams, your hotel will arrange for a grand taxi to meet you & take you direct to the hotel.
Before you leave the airport front hall, pick up the card you will need to fill in when leaving the country ( the same kind they gave you on the plane). They are in stands near the check-in desks. It is handy to have this filled in when you come back for departure.
When you are leaving, allow AT LEAST one and a half hours before departure, preferably two hours, as you will not know how many other planes are departing at the same time. Firstly you must queue at the check-in desk, even if you only have hand luggage. They stamp your boarding pass. Then you queue for passport control. This is the big delay. They dont seem to have more officials when the queue lengthens. Security was fast & they let you bring water through, even big bottles, or bottles half drunk. In the departure hall, there is a small cafe, so save some dirhams for a coffee (16 dirhams) or a sandwich.
If you have any dirhams left over, there is a big plastic bubble by the boarding gate where you can donate them to a Moroccan charity.
If you are flying Ryanair, they will close the boarding gate 30 mins before the flight, another reason not to cut it too fine !
