Royal Air Maroc roles are based in the Casablanca, Morocco’s largest city. With a vast European network, a commute home to visit family and friends is a possibility or simply choose to spend your days off in a melting pot of culture and modernity.
Casablanca is a stunning port city and the commercial hub of Western Morocco, bordering the Atlantic Ocean. A distinctive and unique mix of French-colonial design and traditional Moroccan style give the city a sense of European urban sophistication and this is the perfect base from which to explore two exciting continents; Africa and Europe.
The cost of accomodation in Morocco is relatively low, especially in comparison to Western Europe and North America. There are accommodation options available for every budget.
If you wish to rent, city centre apartment rents start at US$300 per month for a basic studio or US$650 per month for a similar sized apartment in an upper class area. Furnished and unfurnished options are available. There are also other, lower cost and more affordable apartments available out of the city centre depending on what you’re looking for or the price you’d like to pay. Some expatriates also choose to share accomodation.
Larger apartments and houses available for rent if you are looking to relocate your family to Casablanca.
Property prices are incredibly reasonable, especially out of the main centres, and many expats living in Morocco choose to buy a home rather than rent.
There are plenty of easy ways for getting around while in Casablanca, which include trains, trams, buses, taxis and shared taxis.
One of the main ways of moving around Casablanca is by tram. The tramway is over 30 km long and has 49 stops so far, with more planned in the future. Morocco’s excellent train network is one of Africa’s best, linking most of the main centres. Trains are convenient, timely, comfortable and fairly inexpensive.
The roads can be quite congested, but there are various ways of getting around by car. Petit taxis are small red cars that are hired privately, whereas grand taxis are larger white people carriers which typically run along predetermined routes and are shared.
