| Extremely pleased with Marrakech airport, which was very surprising considering awful reviews. I was departing in the evening - around 7 pm - on a Royal Air Maroc flight to Casablanca and continuing to Moscow, so I went through all immigration like it was an international flight. The new terminal is very airy, well-lit, modern but with a Moroccan twist and stylish - loved it. Looks much better than the majority of the airports I've been to. Check-in was in the old terminal, which is seamlessly connected to the new one, and took two minutes, if not less. After check-in you have to proceed to the new terminal for departures, where you have to fill the departure card. The only downside is that there were no pens in sight. I had one, but many people didn't. The staff I interacted with were very friendly and hospitable, as well as efficient - the whole process of getting to the duty free zone took less than 8 minutes! I honestly did not expect that speed at all. The terminal was sparkling clean, with shiny floors, high ceilings and very interesting design all around. Duty free was nothing to write home about, although all Moroccan specialties were there, including very reasonably priced Moroccan wine. You can pay in Moroccan dirhams if the product is of Moroccan origin, so that was very convenient. Wi-Fi is quite fast, and the Priority Pass lounge - if you have access - is really good. Try some freshly squeezed juices, wines and delicious beef tajine while you're there. Since our flight was in an ATR-72, boarding took place via bus, but again, it was on-time, not crowded and very comfortable overall. Honestly, Marrakech airport is one of the best airports I've been to, and while it's not Singapore Changi, it's almost perfect for what it is.
