    Hailed as Morocco’s flagship resort, Mediterrania Saïdia is expected to receive large numbers of visitors as part of the Vision 2010 plan for tourism development. In order to prepare for this, the Moroccan government has revealed plans to expand Oujda international airport with the construction of two new runways, a brand new terminal building with bridge access to 25 stands and a parking bay with capacity for 15 aeroplanes.

    According to the Moroccan authorities, the number of passengers travelling through Oujda airport will reach 1.2 million by 2015 (compared with 258,700 in 2006). This growth is in line with the increase in hotel beds which will rise from 620 (2006) to 15,942 beds in 2012.

    In order to transform Oujda into the main airport for the region, significant investment is being made in the road infrastructure. The airport will be connected to the city of Fez by high speed train and toll road and the journey time between Oujda and Mediterrania Saïdia will be only 35 minutes thanks to the new motorway link which is at an advanced stage.
