It was announced yesterday that the 9th Routes Europe event will take place in Marseille in April 2014.

Marseille-Provence Airport was officially signed as the 2014 Host towards the end of last week and the announcement was made during the 7th Routes Europe event which is currently being held in Tallinn.

Routes Europe is the region’s largest route development forum and enables the aviation industry’s decision makers from across Europe to examine air services, discuss new market opportunities and developments and get up to speed on potential new destinations.

The event has seen year on year growth and this year’s event in Tallinn has seen a record attendance which is expected to increase further in 2013 when the event will move to the Hungarian capital of Budapest.

We are delighted that Routes Europe will be hosted in Marseille in April 2014 and very much look forward to working with the Marseille-Provence Airport team and partners,” said Katie Bland, Future Hosts Director for Routes.

“Marseille is France's second largest city supported by a booming economy and dynamic tourist industry. Its excellent air connectivity throughout Europe and superb conference facilities and infrastructure, will ensure that Routes Europe in 2014 continues to develop and grow.”

Pierre Re?gis, General Manager of Marseille-Provence Airport commented: “We are very proud and delighted to be chosen to host the 9th edition of Routes Europe in Marseille in 2014. This will give participants first-hand experience of the transformation, dynamism and strong points of Marseille - France's second city, located at the heart of Provence – which attracts more international tourists and businesses every year.”

Re?gis continued: “While our airport will set a new traffic record in 2012, with more than 8 million passengers and another 2 digits growth, it is entering into a new and decisive phase in its development. Our ambition today is to open up to new international markets; hosting "Routes Europe" in Marseille will definitely contribute to fulfilling this ambition”.

Marseille Provence Airport (MRS) in South East France on the Mediterranean is ideally located at the intersection of air, rail and road networks. It is the gateway to the South of France – to Marseille, to Provence, and to the French Riviera.

The airport is France’s third largest regional airport for passenger traffic and the largest regional airport for cargo traffic.

The airport has experienced ongoing traffic growth for 8 consecutive years with the number of direct scheduled flights more than doubling from 51 to 104 in the five years between 2006 and 2011 and provides excellent air accessibility to 100 destinations with 40 airlines.

Marseille Provence was founded over 2600 years ago and, with a population of over one million inhabitants, is the regional capital of Southern France.

Combining Mediterranean mildness with Provence’s quality of life the area attracts some 9 million tourists every year.
Marseille Port, which will break the million cruise passengers mark in 2013, will also host Seatrade Med, a UBM event, in November 2012.

This event will put together 1000 cruise delegates as part of its strategy to strengthen its fastest growth amongst Mediterranean ports.
Marseille Provence has also been appointed European Capital of Culture 2013 a title of which they are incredibly proud.

The 2013 calendar will feature a wide variety of events, which will mark the year and this event of international magnitude is expected to attract a further 2 million tourists to the city.
