The working title of this film was Airport Tangier. As noted in reviews, Flight to Tangier was shot in 3-D and widescreen. The Daily Variety review commented that "the mechanics of the depth treatment are easier on the eyes than previous Paramount 3-D offerings." The review also noted that the picture would be available in either 3-D or flat formats, and in "wide-screen, giving the exhibitor a choice of projection." According to the Newsweek review, Flight to Tangier marked the first time that a Technicolor film was released with so many options. The Los Angeles Times reviewer, however, questioned whether any exhibitors were showing the film in 3-D. The New York Times reviewer commented on the scenery in the picture, noting that some of the settings suggest Tangier and, "at other times, the California fruit district." Although some reviewers described the characters of "Hank" and "Susan" as FBI agents, they identify themselves only as "government intelligence" in the film.
