Agadir Airport Guide
Thumbs up for the Agadir Airport! Although being completely deserted and offering only Metal-Benches (but without armrests) no one hassled us (two girls). - Petra
May 2015 - I had one of the worst airport experiences ever at Agadir Al Massira Airport. Extremely unfriendly people at the check, very disrespectful treating you like a piece of shit for no reason at all. My boyfriend noted that it was probably because I was wearing a top where you could see the upper part of my breast. In most parts of the world totally OK, even my 70 year old mother would wear such a top, but in Morocco - although it is extremely touristic and has gotten ridiculously expensive - this is not something you should be showing. Ideally you should show only your eyes. You should be ashamed about the rest and for being a woman. And at the airport they like to remind you that fact, as if being every day on the street and feeling mistreated by the majority is not enough. I passed through the control, it didn't pip, still they told me to come to the side, did a uncomfortable and not professional body control. The police woman even put her longer nails in my hair, touching my head. Then she forced me to go into the new type of control where you stand in a room and they scan you. Then she told me to open my bag and took my tiny nail scissors, that I had taken with me from Berlin and that I have been traveling with since years (I travel 2-4 times per month by plane for business or leisure). Note: I am a 35 year old woman, normal height, brown hair, casually dressed for a 32 degrees trip. I was wearing trousers, a top and a scarf. Had to remove my scarf because of the control though. I am a lawyer and travel a lot all around the globe.
