TNG (Tangier Ibn Battouta Airport): Review

We landed in Tangier around 3pm Morocco time. Our plane was the only plane on the runway. The plane lands on the runway, they connect a set of stairs and we walk from the plane, down the stairs, the way you see movie stars and presidential people do it on TV, and head towards the airport doors… We entered Customs and Boarder Protection services and even though there were only about 50 people on the plane. It took about 5 minutes per person to get through customs… there were 4 people in front of me. It took about 20 minutes for my turn. Im not a patient person. I don’t like lines…

The airport is tiny! It’s no wonder we were the only plane on the runway. On the way out of Customs and Immigration I looked for the restroom. There is one to the right, but it seemed everyone was headed to that one. There is also another one at the furthest end of the airport. It took me about 5 minutes to walk the entire length of the airport. Thats how small this airport is.

The airport has 1 food stand with several tables for you to choose. You can order things like sandwiches, sodas, water, cappuccinos, candy bars etc… However, they seemed to be out of everything.

Nothing is too pricey in Tangier but this airport had inflated, airport prices, which made it seem almost too expensive by Tangier standards.

I walked outside and took a white taxi cab to my Hotel room, El Minza Hotel.

Here are a few pictures of the airport:
