The Rabat-Salé Airport Modernization and Extension Project (PEMARS) was designed as part of the National Airport Master Plan up to 2035 (Ajwae 2035).

Its implementation is consistent with efforts to develop the transport sector, including the continued upgrading and modernisation of infrastructure and services to boost the logistical competitiveness of the national economy.

The project will endow the Kingdom’s capital with facilities that meet users’ needs and contribute to the development of the country’s air transport infrastructure. It is in line with different sector policies, including:

(i) the Logistics Strategy, which aims to position Morocco as the regional logistics hub in Africa;

(ii) the Tourism Vision 2020, which targets 20 million tourists by that date and which will have a strong impact on air traffic development; and

(iii) the Industrial Acceleration Strategy, which targets the successful acceleration of industrialisation through ecosystems-based development.

It will also contribute to economic growth through the development of freight, logistics competitiveness and tourism, which in turn will create jobs and nudge up the GDP. The project components are:

(i) construction works and equipment of a new terminal;

(ii) construction works of related facilities; and

(iii) the supply and installation of terminal security and safety equipment.
