How to get from Johannesburg to Casablana?

What's the best (i.e. luxurious - or at least tolerable) way to get from Johannesburg to Morocco? And just how far is it anyway? I tried to look up flights online and found nearly all of the routing going through Europe.

Try for Cairo. Flights might not be daily from JNB/CAI nor CAI/CAS, but at least you won't have to leave the continent.

I've never been to Morocco, and what I've found is the result of a Google search.

In addition to Casablanca's Anfa Airport (CAS), there appears to be a Mohammed V Airport (CMN) that is 30 km from Casablanca.

South African Airways, Royal Air Maroc, Iberia and others seem to offer flights between JNB and CMN (touching down somewhere like Dakar, which at least is on the same continent and on the way from the departure point to the destination point).

Hope this helps.

RAM used to fly from Jo'burg to Casablanca (CMN is the Int. airport for Casablanca), I used that routing once as the lowest cost at that time to the U.S. But they don't any longer, unless they've re-entered the market and I haven't heard. SAA have never flown that route, as far as I know.

But you're right, you can use SAA to get to Dakar, then there is a connection from there to Casablanca. But very expensive. Another routing is Emirates via Dubai.

Judy in Calgary - Thanks for the clarification between CAS and CMN. CMN is the Int'l Airport.

Ericka - sometimes there are places "you can't get there from here". Of course you usually can, but the routing is often difficult.

Wish you luck!

Thanks everyone. It's probably time for me to get out a map. It seems the continent of Africa is a big place!

Iberia via Madrid is probably the easiest, most frequent and quickest, though using Emirates over Dubai might be cheaper.
