Best Airlines or Cities to fly to Morocco from Europe?

HI - I am looking to book reward travel from DFW to Morocco. I probably can't get to my preferred location of Marakesh - so will probably need to get a round-trip to Europe (e.g., Madrid or Paris) and then take a budget airlines down to Morocco.

Do you have a recommendation or preference on airlines (e.g., Ryanair) to fly to Morocco? Dependablilty, easy of use, budget ?

Many thanks!

Hello there, I think either Ryanair or Easyjet are pretty good.

Hi those are just the cheapest, the good ones are RAM and Iberia, if you are flying from usa, as you can use Ryanair or Easyjet too.

Why not fly Royal Air Maroc out of JFK?It probably flies only to Casablanca OR do like we did as we were meeting up with my kids in London-we flew the airline I work for to London and then took Easy Jet from London's Gatwick to Marrakesh.Our return was Royal Air Maroc(their discount subsidy-Atlas maybe?)Marrakesh back to Gatwick.Inexpensive and very easy!

Personally,Ryanair is ridiculous because it nickels and dimes you to death with extra charges AND they always seem to fly out of airports that are not close to your city (more fees).

Yes, do check out RAM, they have some great fares and the service is good, especially when compared with Ryanair!

You have to look up for RAM, and the best city to land in would suggest Marrakech, if it happens to Casablanca skip it ASAP once you visit the Mosque.

Appreciate your suggestions. We need to fly American Airlines as we can get free flights that way (using reward miles) to Europe. The whole trip is predicated on maximizing reward miles. Right now we have tickets booked on hold for non-stops to Madrid. We probably will stay one day there and fly the next morning on Iberia to Marakesh. We will need to stay one more night in Madrid on the way back due to flight times...but an extra day in Madrid won't hurt us

I am in a similar situation. Free first/business FF miles to Europe & a connection to RAK. I looked at options & I concluded that Paris seemed to have more flexibility with flights from CDG & Orly. And I have points which will give me a Paris Hilton for 5 nights . . . and it IS our favorite city anyway . . .
