What is the air quality like at post (good/moderate/bad)? Are there seasonal air quality issues? Does the air quality have an impact on health?

I would say it's quite good, depending on your neighbourhood. There are a lot of cars, but the air flow seems to be good enough that the pollution doesn't accumulate too heavily - Oct 24, 2017
Allergies and respiratory problems can be exacerbated in the dry season (March thru October), as pollution and dust are prevalent. - Oct 23, 2017
Due to the abundant sea breezes, surprisingly good. I expected more pollution based on the number of vehicles on the road. - Jul 20, 2014
Air quality, in terms of pollution, is good. However, many kids (and adults) here have allergies to something or another--for example, olive tree pollen. I have a child on several daily medications to keep that manageable, and I am on three myself. - Nov 17, 2011
The air quality is really good. You are on the ocean. - Nov 16, 2011
Air quality is good in Rabat. - Sep 18, 2011
Moderate, many of the vehicles are diesel. Quite a few are older and have awful exhaust fumes. - Apr 8, 2010
