Nador Airport is an international airport that is located at Al Arouit, which is about 30 kilometers from Nador city in Morocco. It is also known by another name as Arwi Airport. It has links to other main Morocco airports with European destinations like Belgium, Spain, Germany and the Netherlands. It has a single terminal that houses both arrivals and departures, but it still has the capacity of handling larger airlines like Boeing 747.
Nador Airport has limited public transport to the airport, and hence visitors require getting someone to pick or drop them to the airport. There is a parking yard in front of the terminal, which visitors or people who come to pick them pay. Lack of public airport transfers is not a problem when you are coming to Nador for a holiday, because there are enough car hire service providers where you can get a comfortable car that you will drive around in while visiting various attractions. When you are traveling as a group, you can also opt to take one of the taxis that are set aside for private hire.
