Marseille Provence Airport: in the pipeline for 2020
In recent years, Marseille Provence Airport has heavily invested in MP2. It will now concentrate on extending and renovating MP1 and increasing its capacity to receive large aircraft. €14.5 million will be spent from 2015-2017 to change the airport access and bus terminal. A second phase of work before 2020 will focus on extending the runways and creating a building to link Terminal 1 to Terminals 3 and 4.
On 8 January, the airport released the results of a study into how much air passengers spend in the region. Approximately €1 billion is spent in the region’s largest cities, with €326 million spent in Marseille each year, far ahead of the €128 million and €67 million spent in Aix-en-Provence and Avignon respectively.
