The Casablanca Mohammed V International Airport is the busiest airport in Morocco, located around 30 kilometres south east of the country's biggest city. The airport is named after the late King Mohammed V of Morocco and handles over 7 million passengers every year.
Casablanca Mohammed V Airport, also known as "Nouasseur" by many locals due to the suburb it is located in, was originally built in the 1940s by the United States as a supplementary airfield for Anfa Airport, located in the South West of Casablanca.
Today, the airport has three terminals and contains its own train station, situated in the arrivals area of Terminal 1, which offers efficient hourly departures to Casablanca.
Two airport hotels can also be found on site, one of which is located inside the transit area of Terminal 2 and offers rooms for short periods to passengers in transit.
