Budget Airlines that Fly to Marseille

Before we talk about budget airlines that fly to Marseille, you need to know this: There is an airport in Marseille. It is cleverly called the Marseille Airport (but officially named Marseille Provence Airport, or Aéroport de Marseille Provence if you’re feeling French today).
But if you’re taking a cheap flight to Marseille, you’re going to land at its hip, deconstructionist little brother, mp2. I’m telling you this so you don’t panic if you go into the Marseille Airport and don’t see your flight on the departures board. Just head outside, make a left, and walk down the sidewalk until you reach a building that looks like it’s under construction. That’s mp2.
