Arrival times and other important information

As always, we’re looking forward to welcoming you to the airport and we’re working hard to make sure your trip runs as smoothly as possible. To help with this process, please be aware of the following:

Consider your arrival times

Allow three hours to check-in before your flight and make sure all your travel documents are up-to-date. Please do not turn up significantly early for your flight though, as this can cause unnecessary congestion in the airport and you may not be able to check in your bags.


Remove liquids from hand luggage 

Remember, you can only take liquids on the plane that are in individual containers with a maximum capacity of 100ml. This includes creams, gels, pastes, aerosols and make-up. 

Remove each item from hand luggage and place them all in a single transparent, re-sealable plastic bag of not more than one litre capacity. Each bag must be able to close properly with all the items inside. These bags are available free-of-charge before security. Passengers are strictly limited to one bag of liquids per person.


Airline and route moves

Some airlines have moved terminals this summer.  You should always keep in touch with your airline to confirm which terminal your flight departs from before travelling to the airport. 


Terminal Drop-Off Charge

A £5 charge applies to vehicles dropping off passengers at the designated drop-off zones, located directly outside the terminals. Discounts and exemptions apply. Free drop-off is available at our Long Stay car parks.

    It may not have the tourist appeal of Marrakech or Fes, but there’s plenty of star quality in Casablanca…
    Hassan II Mosque: an unforgettable architectural masterpiece, open to all

    There's a gorgeous white swathe of incredible buildings to admire in Casablanca, but none are quite as spectacular as the Hassan II Mosque (left) built on a promontory overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

    It’s the second largest functioning mosque in Africa – and the 7th largest in the world – accommodating 105,000 worshippers in total: 25,000 inside and a further 80,000 in the courtyard. Those who want to pray can do so on its pristine glass floors and the 60-storey-high minaret has a laser at the top which points directly to Mecca itself.

    Should you neither be a Muslim nor religious, it’s also fine to drop in: you can do so via selected guided tours that last around an hour and really are worth the effort.

    Once you're done ogling the splendid religious structures and art deco buildings of the city, you'll certainly build an appetite and should make a reservation at Rick's Cafe, which opened in 2004 and is based on the fictional location from the film.

    There’s a baby grand piano, ostentatious chandeliers, palm trees and well-dressed guests drinking and schmoozing their way back to 1942: it's not so much a café as a time machine and long, slow lunches really are the order of the day.

    If you want to admire the elegant African flora or visit the stunning Cathédrale de Sacré Coeur make sure you also visit the Parc de la Ligue Arabe. It's Casablanca's biggest open space, lined with palm trees and is a wonderful place for a romantic stroll and daydreaming the afternoon away.


    You can experience the transportive wonders of Casablanca via Heathrow by booking with Royal Air Maroc or British Airways.
