Morocco and the Airport and MRO Industry
With 16 international airports and 10 domestic airports, Morocco is widely recognized as the entry gate to Africa.
2015 was a great year for the Moroccan airports which handled over 17.6 million passengers, with three airports that welcomed more than one million: Casablanca Mohammed V International Airport (8.1 million), Marrakech Menara Airport (3.9 million) and Agadir Al Massira Airport (1.4 million).
Cargo flights also record a significant growth in 2015 with over 64,250 tons which represent an 18% increase compared to 2014.
Morocco’s strategic location on the African continent, and its abundant skilled labor force make the country a strong MRO player. Considered as a hub for Africa, Morocco is attracting major companies and the market is expected to grow in the years to come.
