The further expansion of Swissport Executive Aviation in Morocco continued with a dedicated VIP terminal at Marrakech Menara Airport, which opened on 1 February 2020. The new facility offers state-of-the-art infrastructure, that make arrivals, stopovers and departures convenient and hassle-free. Marrakech is Swissport’s second facility of this kind in Morocco, after the Casablanca FBO, which opened in 2018.

On more than 500 sqm, the stylish facility offers relaxing lounge space for up to 40 passengers, including a bar and a media corner. The terminal also includes a VVIP lounge for up to nine guests. The first floor is reserved for crew members and can accommodate up to 18 people. Here, they can relax and prepare for their flights. The crew area includes a TV lounge, a kitchen, two spacious bedrooms and bathrooms with showers.
