TRANSPORT Marrakech-Menara airport is designated as the "most beautiful" airport in the world, coming at the top of a recent ranking established by Skyteam, the alliance of the most important airlines.

The airport of Marrakech-Menara has not finished making a name for itself, attractive travellers and professionals thanks to its new ultra-design terminal. Indeed, after occupying 4th place in the "Most Beautiful Airports in the World" ranking in 2016, the airport infrastructure of the red city is back in the rankings this year to take first place, a ranking signed Skyteam, the alliance of the most important airlines.

As a reminder, the new terminal was inaugurated on 21 December 2016 by King Mohammed VI. Costing a sum of MAD 1.22 billion, the building extends over an area of 57,000 m², an expansion that allows the airport to receive 12 additional medium-haul aircraft and raises the annual capacity of 3 million passengers to 9 million at present.
