We are about 950 miles from the coast of Morocco where we will land at the Casablanca International Airport, which is named after the late Sultan: Mohammed V of Morocco. It is the largest airport in Morocco, and among the five busiest airports in Africa. Casablanca Airport registered about three million passengers in 2020, down from 10 million passengers in 2019, a decrease due to the coronavirus crisis.
Casablanca is Morocco’s biggest city. It is a really important industrial and economic hub in the country, while also being a city full of history. Art in the city is a mix between European art deco and Moorish, as Casablanca was a French colony. Completed in 1993, Hassan II Mosque is one of the most famous sights in the city. Other interesting sites to visit while in the city are: Marche Central, one of the most famous urban markets; Rick’s Café which recreates the bar made famous by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in the movie classic Casablanca; and Mohammed V Square, a public square of historical and symbolic significance.
You are doing great work as our miles are adding up to complete this monumental task!
