Marseille Provence Airport (MRS) is the primary airport for the Provence region. Situated 27km (16 miles) northwest of Marseille, the airport is the primary hub for resorts such as Aix-en-Provence, Avignon, and Miramas.
Flights to Marseille Provence Airport come from all over Europe, including London, Frankfurt, Istanbul, Casablanca, Barcelona, Lisbon, Geneva, Milan, Brussels, Amsterdam, Rome, Helsinki, Ajaccio, Venice and Athens. There are few intercontinental routes, including flights from Montreal, Ouagadougou and Mauritius.
Processing more than seven million passengers per year, the airport built a new terminal specifically for budget airlines; however the terminal is generally regarded to have a “budget” feel to it, and can have uncomfortable waiting periods and a lack of seating in busy periods.
