Currently MRS is only linked to DUB and PIK... I would expect at least 6 or 7 new routes to make it a base! However, I thought Carcassonne would have been first.

Next flight: hopefully soon...

That's excellent news! Let them link EIN with MRS immediately, that will save me a lot of hassle and money. Perfect! ( If it happens..)

Is there any reason why Ryanair or easyJet don't fly STN-MRS yet? I would imagine it's a very likely route. And for Ryanair, usually routes are started from STN first before PIK.

Expect a lot more flying from MRS to Morocco in the short- and to Tunisia and Algeria in the long term (once there should be an open skies agreement with these two countries). What other LCC will jump on the ethnic travel bandwaggon?

The focus in the South of France ( exception Nice and Carcassonne..) are the mediterrannean regions.
Historically people here feel less "gaulois " but rather latin and that reflects in the relation of families,travel and business.
North Africa is by far the most important travel destination from Marseille,and even in other smaller cities in the south of France people tend to make vaccation in Morocco,Tunisia or Antilles rather than in Turkey,Bahamas or Mallorca.
Fact is that many French don't speak any foreign language and spending time in Marrakech is easy and convneient for them for many reasons.
Languedoc has a large spanish population which would use MRS for cheap flights to Spain.

The article states following points:

- Important announcement regarding the low-cost developement in France
- FR has been looking to MRS as a base already since Jan 2006
- During Sept 2006, the new low cost terminal in MRS will be ready
- A FR expantion could bring 50 daily rotations in MRS
- A destination in Africa (Marocco) is very likely to be served

Hope I got all the important points.

Yes,today MRS is only linked to DUB and PIK! But The works to build a new low cost terminal are currently in progress.
Ryanair expects to operate 50 daily flights per day after the opening of this terminal in September 2006.

The low cost market grows slowly in MRS:
Bristol by Easyjet from July 2006
Brussels by Virgin Express (operated by SNBA)
Cologne by HLX.COM
Dublin by Ryanair and Aer Lingus
Glasgow by Ryanair
Liverpool by Easyjet
London Gatwick by Easyjet
Marrakech by Atlas blue
Munich by Condor

Don't remenber exactly but I guess Stansted has been the first low cost destination from MRS.The route was operated by Buzz a few years ago and stopped when Buzz merged into Ryanair.
Buzz also operated the Brest-MRS-Brest route.

Ryanair stopped STN-MRS after they took over Buzz.

Both Ryannair and Easyjet are expanding in Marseilles and that's great news for the airport! They definitly have some potential on the North Africa netwok but I am a bit concerned about security with Ryannair... We'll have to wait of course that the routes open first!
I didn't know the new terminal would be fitted with an International (ie: NOT European) Customs Area.
I also hope they link Scandinavia with Marseilles, apart from Coppenhaggen there is no flight going to this area!

Finally a great news for spotting there!

Basel-Mulhouse airport (which is a public French institution) has made a tariff system that benefits new airlines opening new routes and transporting high volumes. This should be an incentive for low cost carriers to operate into the airport.
This does NOT include direct payments made by the airport. The thing is that you can chose between an old (and less comfortable) terminal, which is cheaper, and the new terminal (more comfortable) but which is a bit more expensive. Also you get a reduced tariff on passenger fees the more passengers an airline brings to the airport.

From this tariff ALL the airlines can benefit. In fact Air France already benefits from it since they are number two after easyJet at the airport in terms of passengers transported. Further, Air France does not pay a single Euro in landing taxes (for the first year, and a reduced tariff in the second year) for the recently started new routes from Basel-Mulhouse to Toulouse and Bordeaux.

BUT, Air France sued the airport for discrimination. The provincial court in Strasbourg decided that it is discrimination so the airport does need to make a new tariff system. This is simply silly because it is no discrimination! Also it is in direct contradiction to European law (which in case "Charleroi" made a clear decision that supports the tariff system of Basel-Mulhouse airport). So most likely we will see another case but sure the European commission will decide in favour of Basel-Mulhouse in the end.

Now since I know Ryanair, they do not only get a good tariff system, they will most likely get direct payment from the airport organisation in Marseille. A court case will follow I am sure. Air France does not accept any competition and gets backed by most of the governmental institutions in France (slot coordination, judges etc.).

But thankfully there is the European commission in the end which will decide in favour of the consumer, in favour of more competition and in favour of the future of air travel (LCCs).

Intersting that they will operate a CIA flight. I thought that CIA had been locked and no further flights could be added. Is this instead of the Alghero route?

With Fez,Marrakech and Oujda Ryanair will become a major player in the Moroccan aviation scene...
There will be much,much more passengers flying to and from maghreb countries once the tarif system has been liberalized.
AF and RAM will defenitely feel the heat but the countries involved ( I assume Tunisia will follow soon..) will feel the benefit from an increasing number of vistors.

Looks like Oslo (Torp) is going to be linked with the suny south of France. Good news for Marseille and also for north africa. I wonder when/if FR will launch UK-Morocco flights? Anyway, great to see expansion making our continent better connected.
