If you have time and are feeling adventurous there are a whole variety of options for reaching Marrakech from the UK; boat, train, car, bus, trekking or even by camel all of which we can advise on. However, whilst less romantic, for a short break from the UK or other European destinations it is probably more practical to fly into Marrakech’s International Airport with its brand new terminal, located only a 15 minute drive from the city centre or nearest golf course.
WHO FLIES FROM THE UK
Several major airlines serve Menara Airport (RAK). There are Marrakech flights from Birmingham (BHK), Manchester (MAN), London Gatwick (LGW), London Heathrow (LHR), Bristol (BRS), London Luton (LTN) and London Stansted (STN).
Airlines include British Airways, EasyJet, Ryanair, & Royal Air Maroc all of which operate a number of flights from around the UK.
Our costs quoted do not include flights which our clients will usually book themselves directly with the airlines although we will happily advise your best options. We can also offer a flight booking service on request.
ARRIVING IN MENARA AIRPORT (RAK) – FAST TRACK OPTION
It’s important to remember Marrakech is in Africa where life is a little slower and less efficient than Europe! In addition, currently, security is rightly very tight. It can sometimes be very slow getting through immigration on arrival – an hour is usual and it can be longer. If you are patient this is OK however some clients tell us they can find this frustrating – luckily there is another solution.
If you want a first class feel – be met at the aircraft like a VIP/Celebrity and be escorted through the airport to your awaiting transport bypassing long lines then from £50 per person, FASTTRACK is for you! This is the fastest way through immigration.
It is also an option on departure however in our experience it is always faster leaving Marrakech so this would be unnecessary in our opinion.
FROM THE AIRPORT
As soon as you have cleared immigration your More Than Golf Marrakech driver will be waiting for you, who together with our concierge will be contactable for the duration of your stay. If your group are arriving at different times from different UK airports we will arrange separate airport pick-ups. From the airport you will be taken either to your accommodation or straight to the golf course depending on your schedule.
