The airport of Marrakesh - Menara is part of the 13 best airports in the world, according to a classification established by the monthly "Travel and Leisure" magazine that is published by condenast in New York.

Located 3 km from downtown, the airport of Marrakech-Menara Airport is the second Moroccan airport in terms of traffic after Mohammed V in Casablanca. According to "Travel and Leisure, the new Terminal 1 at the airport is" an example of a successful marriage between traditional Islamic architecture and modern architecture. "
Marrakech-Menara has two terminals, Terminal 1 which was completely refurbished in June 2008, is fueled partly by solar energy. Terminal 2 was opened in 2005. A third terminal is planned for 2012 to bring the total capacity to 8 million passengers per year.

In this classification, there is the Kansai airport built on an artificial island in Osaka Bay (Japan), Terminal 4 of Madrid-Barajas airport and the airport of Bilbao in Spain. Airports in Denver, the TWA terminal at John F. Kennedy in the United States, and Chek Lap Kok airport in Hong Kong are also on the list.
Others such as Incheon Airport (South Korea), the terminal 3 of Beijing Capital Airport (China), those of Ushuaia in Argentina, Berlin, Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) and Montevideo (Uruguay ) are also sited.

The airport's architecture looks really interesting with all those diamond and triangular motifs... to me, it is an airport worth noting.

I will rename it though to standardize it with the other airport threads for easy reference... it will become:
