Marrakesh Menara Airport is an airport serving Marrakesh, the capital city of the Marrakesh-Tensift-El Haouz region in Morocco. 

Menara is more than just an airport, it’s a time machine. When you step outside the 21st century airport, you’ll enter a city where classical traditions of the arts, crafts, music, and food are as vibrant today as they were centuries ago.

Direct flights connect Marrakech with cities throughout Europe, and from there to the world.

The Dirham is the currency in Morocco

The Dirham is normally purchased within Morocco, and can be obtained from bureau de change in airports, major banks and hotels, or from cash machines, which are widely available in major towns and cities and will take most UK credit and debit cards.  Using a debit card at an ATM is often the easiest and cheapest method. In the country side and smaller towns cash points are rare and cards are often not accepted. In any case inform your bank before you travel if you intend to use a card, to stop them declining any transaction as an anti-fraud measure. Some travel agents in the UK offer Dirham now, but they tend to offer poor rates of exchange and limited amounts.

The exchange rate within Morocco can vary from between 12 to 13 dirhams to the GBP.
