Marseille Provence Airport or Aéroport de Marseille Provence (IATA: MRSICAO: LFML) is an airport located 27 km (17 miles) northwest of Marseille,[2] on the territory of Marignane, both communes of the Bouches-du-Rhône département in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur région of France. The airport's hinterland goes from Gap to Arles and from Toulon to Avignon.

It is the fifth busiest French airport by passenger traffic and third largest for cargo traffic.[3] In 2012 the airport achieved the fourth highest European passenger traffic growth, at 12.7% with 8,295,479 passengers.[4] Marseille Provence Airport serves as a focus city for Air France. In summer 2013, the airport served 132 regular destinations, the largest offer in France after the Parisian airports.[5]


Formerly known as MarseilleMarignane Airport, it has been managed since 1934 by the Marseille-Provence Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI).[6]

In the 1920s and 1930s, Marignane was one of France's main points of operation for flying boats. It even briefly served as a terminal for PanAm's Clipper flying boats.[7] Some other hydroplane operators were Aéropostale and Air Union, the latter moving over from Antibes in 1931. Marignane was also a production site for hydroplanes by Lioré et Olivier.

In September 2006, the airport opened its new terminal MP2 for budget airlines. In 2013 the airport expanded its shopping and dining options, with 30 new shops and restaurants, among which is the first Burger King shop in France since 1997.[8][9]
