The new, state-of-the-art Fès-Saïss Airport terminal opened in May 2017 and flights operate regularly from international and domestic destinations, including direct flights from Marrakesh, new in 2017. But you can't fly directly into Fez from the United States; you must connect in Europe or Casablanca. Upon arrival, petits taxis wait outside the airport terminal and train station and carry two to four people. Grands taxis carry six people. Avoid unofficial drivers who hang around the terminals and charge false rates. Taxis should have their meters running. Most drivers request cash payment.
