Flying to Morocco from Canada:
Morocco is on average a 14 hour flight from the east coast of Canada and an 18 hour flight from the west coast. Marrakech is the starting point for the majority of our tours and one of the fastest flying routes from both Toronto and Vancouver is offered by British Airways with a short transit in Europe. Most flights from Canada to Marrakech will have two stops during the flight. There are better flight options from Canada to Casablanca with just one stop en route so for less time spent in the air you may wish to consider our Road to Casablanca tour, which starts and ends in Casablanca. You can search on Travelocity for flight deals from Canada to Morocco.
