50 destinations and RT-PCR tests to find loved ones in complete safety from Marseille Provence airport
After a unique year, everyone thinks of the end-of-year gatherings in small groups. Marseille Provence airport recalls the flight schedule confirmed by airlines for the holidays.
RT-PCR tests - with results in 30 minutes - are now offered to passengers directly at the airport to facilitate their departure to destinations that require them.
People in Provence will be able to travel and meet their loved ones for the end of the year celebrations. Airlines, which for the most part offer more flexible terms of sale during this particular period, have confirmed a number of destinations.
In France, the main cities will be served, with in particular Paris every day (Air France and Vueling), Bordeaux (Air France, Ryanair and Easyjet), Brest (Transavia and Ryanair), Caen (Air France and Volotea), Lille (Air France and Ryanair), Nantes (Transavia and Ryanair), Rennes (Air France and Volotea) or even Strasbourg (Air France and Volotea).
Territorial continuity with Corsica will continue with four cities served at least once a day by Air Corsica: Ajaccio, Bastia, Calvi and Figari.
In all, Marseille will be connected to 12 regional French cities and Paris.
European borders remain open and several European capitals will be in the spotlight: Brussels (Brussels Airlines and Ryanair), Madrid (Iberia and Ryanair), Luxembourg (Volotea), Amsterdam (Air France), Lisbon (TAP and Ryanair), London (British Airways and easyJet), Prague (Ryanair and Volotea), Bucharest (Ryanair) or Istanbul (Turkish Airlines and Pegasus).
For people whose relatives are beyond the borders of Europe, flights to Tunisia (in particular Tunis), Morocco (in particular Casablanca, Marrakech, Rabat and Tangier), Ethiopia (Addis Ababa), Senegal (Dakar) and Reunion are respectively operated by Tunisair / Nouvel Air, Royal Air Maroc / Ryanair, Ethiopian Airlines, Air Senegal and Air Austral.
Thus, 50 destinations will be operated by 20 airlines for the holiday season.
The full flight schedule is available on the airport's website (https://www.marseille-airport.com/gradual-resumption-of-airline-traffic) and updated weekly.
Passengers are invited to go to the Government website to check the conditions for entering the territory of the country of destination. Depending on the country, passengers may be required to present the results of a negative RT-PCR test before entering the territory.
Health security systems (screening, tracing, health security measures) have been in place for several months on the airport platform and are evolving according to government recommendations. After being the first airport to launch antigenic tests on French territory, and in order to offer its passengers a safe journey, Marseille Provence airport wanted to go further.
NEW. At departure, RT-PCR tests available for free with results in 30 minutes
Marseille Provence airport now offers its passengers the performance of RT-PCR tests, in collaboration with Labosud Provence. As negative results of such tests are necessary to enter many countries, it was particularly important for Marseille Provence Airport to offer such a service during the holiday season.
This screening center is open by appointment and only to passengers, 7 days a week, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Appointments can be made either on the Marseille Provence airport website (https://www.marseille.aeroport.fr/centre-de-depistage), or on the Labosud Provence site (https: //covid.inovie.fr/patient). This screening center is located on the arrivals level of Terminal 1 Hall B.
The performance of this test is free on presentation of the Carte Vitale and the results are obtained in 30 minutes. The validity of the test is 72 hours.
This is a key asset offered to passengers, thus making their journey easier and safer throughout their journey.
On arrival, screening of passengers returning from areas where the virus is actively circulating is carried out
Passengers arriving on Provencal territory and returning from areas where the virus is actively circulating represent a particularly important issue in limiting the spread of the virus on our territory. They must present negative results of a PCR test upon arrival.
- For so-called "scarlet countries" (commercial lines from Turkey and Morocco): passengers must necessarily present the results of a negative PCR test less than 72 hours before boarding. For lack of presentation of this document, boarding is refused.
- For the so-called "red countries" (commercial lines from Tunisia, Senegal and Ethiopia): passengers must present the results of a negative COVID test when entering French territory. These passengers can present the results of a negative PCR test of less than 72 hours carried out in the country of origin or carry out an antigen test at Marseille Provence airport.
