Ever heard about Gibraltar's Airport? Yes, it may be one of the most dangerous airports ( no accidents ever recorded) in the World, now it also has the most scenic approaches known in existence! The limestone Rock of Gibraltar is a awesome feature to gaze from the sky! Now you can travel between two continents in 30 minutes! 

Royal Air Maroc introduces a new flight from Gibraltar to Tangiers, Morocco. Flights from the European continent to its African neighbor continent will indeed be the one of the shortest intercontinental flights. A total of 57 kilometers separate both locations.

Gibraltar will become a Mediterranean hub when visiting the south of Spain for fellow travelers who may have not visited this part of the world! From Gibraltar you will be able to travel to Tangiers and then a connection to Casablanca! Fares Gibraltar - Tangiers start from around £66 per person and is very economical when you compare other options such as the FRS ferry from Tarifa the coastal town nearest to the African continent and Tangiers.

150331-N-ZF498-057 STRAIT OF GIBRALTAR (March 31, 2015) An HH-60H Sea Hawk helicopter attached to the Dragonslayers of Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron (HS) 11 patrols the Strait of Gibraltar as the Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group transits the strait. 

The ferry sums up to be around 66 euros, £50 give or take the exchange rate. When you add the bus from La linea Spain, another 15 euros it will be easier to fly with Royal Air Maroc. Nevertheless if you enjoy the travel and ferry crossing at the entrance to the Mediterranean then this is also iconic and beautiful!

Do you think it's possible to travel in between 3 countries and 2 continents in 24 hours?
