Marrakech to Spain: Train or Plane?

I will be travelling to Marrakech the end of December with my wife and two sons. Time is rather limited and we would like to go from Marrakech to Southern Spain. The night train from Marracech to Tangier would be great if there were some way to reserve couchettes in advance. (Any thoughts?)

Our other option would be to fly from Marrakech to a city in Southern Spain but I am searching for the most direct flight.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks!

You can not book couchettes or train tickets for Moroccan trains from abroad. But I assume you will be spending a few days in Morocco before you leave for Spain (right?), so get the reservations a few days in advance from the train station.

The only direct flights between Marrakech and Spain are to Madrid and Barcelona. For a flight to Malaga, you would have to go through Casablanca airport.
