Rabat – Moroccan Airports Authority (ONDA) has announced plans to equip Marrakech with a second airport, in addition to opening new terminals in all the major Moroccan city airports by 2025.
ONDA also aims to build a third terminal at Casablanca’s International Airport to increase the hosting capacity from 10 million to 23 million passengers.
As part of the national plan, Agadir’s Al Massira airport will see an extension to raise the hosting capacity from 2 million to 7 million passengers.
