Getting There Royal Air Maroc run direct scheduled flights daily from London Heathrow to Casablanca, and twice-weekly flights to Tangier, and British Airways fly from Heathrow to Casablanca, Marrakesh and Agadir. In addition to these, EasyJet from Gatwick and Manchester, and with Ryanair from Luton and Stansted. EasyJet also fly from Gatwick to Agadir, Ryanair from Stansted to Fez serve Marrakesh and Agadir from Gatwick and Manchester. Flights typically take around three and a half hours.

When to go Due to the varied geography, the best time to travel Morocco depends greatly on where you are going. In general, spring (April and May) is the best weather across Morocco. In the Saharan region--and to a lesser extent the plains cities--midsummer should be avoided. However, the hottest months are lovely for a visit to the coastal cities, like Essaouira and Rabat. Winter months are very cold in the mountains, which can be hard since many hotels don’t have heating. Desert days are warm and clear during the summer, but temperatures at night can plummet. It is important to consider Islamic holidays when you travel to Morocco.
