As everyone knows, Air France (AF) uses Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) airport as their main international airport.
Given the size of France, I wonder has AF ever considered creating a second international hub in southern France? Has there ever been consideration for turning Marseille (MRS) or Nice (NCE) into an international hub for AF?
If that is possible, I think it would be great idea. Not only will it serve well-heeled tourists (after all, the southern coast of France is home to some extremely rich people and expensive resorts), but it would also serve a very large population of French citizen that may desire to fly internationally but have no desire to deal with the hassle of taking the train or flying to CDG to take international flights.
