Marseille Provence Airport: the French Connection persists, to and from North Africa

Marseille is a port city on the French Mediterranean coast and one of the country’s largest conurbations.

Marseille Provence Airport handles both full service and low cost airlines (for which a dedicated terminal was constructed in 2006) and travel to and from North Africa makes up a large part of its passenger portfolio. It is in competition with a range of airports to the east, west and north, mainly medium sized ones such as itself, across distances varying from 170km to 400km.

This report looks at growth trends at Marseille Provence Airport, operational statistics, how it matches up to peer airport competition across a range of metrics, and at construction activities and ownership issues. Privatisation of the airport is likely, possibly within 2016; whether it occurs probably depends on prior privatisations at Toulouse, Nice and Lyon Airports.
