I would be cautious about buying a ticket before he has his visa. My husband couldn't get it from Aramex for 2.5 weeks. I know someone else who's interview was Jan 8th and haven't been able to pick it up. 

 

Ours changed to "Issued" after 1 week and my husband went to Aramex twice in Casablanca and they told him he had to wait for the text.

It really is best not to book the flight until after VOH.  There have been some delays I've seen lately where AP is taking weeks to months to complete.  A 4 hour stopover does not require a visa but make sure that they stay in the airport.

with a valid visa to the USA you do not need a transit visa at Charles deGaule airport

 

however a freind purchased tickets thru a cheap internet site and they were not allowed to board the plane in Marrackeh as the tickets were in 2 parts (one to Paris and one they were suppose to pick up in Charles deGaule airport to the USA

 

so make sure your tickets show all the way to US

I had a layover in Paris, I am Moroccan and I was under J1 visa. As long as the person concerned doesn't leave the airport to catch the next flight then he wouldn't need a transit visa. However, if the layover is in Canada, Moroccans need a transit visa .

i would suggest him to call the France consulate, doesn't he need to pass through passport control ? what if the connection flight will be from another Terminal ? i might be wrong but better to be safe and call them, or even send an email and see their answer, take this email with you just in case. 

this email address can help : visas.casablanca-fslt@diplomatie.gouv.fr  

 

I have a question about Transit in Canadian airport (for sure flights through Canada to the US are the cheapest :) )  I've searched online without a satisfying result : how long does it take to have the visa transit, any fees?

thank you

Don't make any travel plans until he has his passport with the K1 visa in it, in his hands.  Or pay more for a refundable, full-fare ticket that you can change easily without paying a lot for the change fee.  There are often delays in getting the actual visa, so keep that in mind and don't pay for a non-refundable, cheapest ticket making an assumption about when you will have the visa.  Others have done this and had to pay a lot of money for a new ticket.  Make tentative plans and know your options and cheapest airlines or best schedules or whatever, but wait until he has the visa in hand before making final plans and buying a ticket.  Congratulations on the approval!  Soon  you'll be together!

Most Canadian airports with regularly scheduled flights to the US have CBP Preclearance, but not all. Some, like Kelowna International Airport (has multiple daily Alaska Airlines flights to Seattle), don't have CBP Preclearance: https://www.cbp.gov/border-security/ports-entry/operations/preclearance

When i posted on  here that Montreal did the US customs clearance,   another member said all Canadian international  airports did  it

They probably haven't traveled from YLW or similar small airports to the US. A 3-star yelp review for YLW (I added the Bold); https://www.yelp.com/biz/kelowna-international-airport-kelowna?hrid=vYKY9y8j7OYHbD0D0KvGcA:

Quote

A compact airport with basic amenities like a Tim Horton's, plus rental cars that are parked right next to the terminal. The only drawbacks are that if you're coming in internationally (from the U.S., that is), there can be a line at Canadian customs if a bunch of flights come in at the same time. Similarly, on your way out, the line to clear security can be epic, plus if you're flying to the U.S., there is no customs and immigration pre-clearance here.

 

Still, there's not much you can expect from a small airport, and YLW generally gets the job done.
