In the space of 10 years, Marseille Provence Airport has grown from 58 to 100 direct destinations and from 6 million to over 8 million passengers a year.
Before launching major transformation work, we wanted to find out what you want, hope for, and even dream of, in terms of the airport of the future. So we launched our online collaborative platform #Et Si (What if…?).
It harvested over 1,000 ideas that attracted over 100,000 votes. Your suggestions helped us to pinpoint your priorities more clearly. Some of them will be at the very core of the transformation work at the airport, backed by an investment scheme of unprecedented proportions!
A BIG THANK YOU!
ALMOST 1,000 IDEAS AND 100,000 VOTES WERE SUBMITTED TO OUR ONLINE COLLABORATIVE PLATFORM LAUNCHED IN APRIL 2016…
digital technologies •
• new facilities
« What if… there were outdoor bars and terraces?”
« What if… cars and taxis could pull up at the airport and drop travellers off perfectly safely without having to enter a car park? »
« What if… there were interactive screens (geolocation, services, shops, etc.)? »
« What if… the incredible sunshine in our region could be harnessed by solar panels? »
« What if… we had more greenery inside the airport (green walls, plants, etc.) as well as outside, plus loudspeakers playing birds singing or cicadas chirping? »
« What if… there was a big tourist information desk with brochures on the Provence region? »
Easier access, shorter waiting times, helpful staff, harnessing digital innovations to create practical new services…
A new passenger experience, creating outdoor terraces and new social spaces, an immersive sensory corridor in arrivals (a worldwide first at an airport), a new hospitality desk where tourists can find out “what’s on” in Provence….
Constructing an additional building at the very heart of Terminal 1, favouring clean energy, enlarging the mp² terminal building, adding a new boarding pier in Terminal 1 to boost long-haul traffic…
IN 2020, AND SUBSTANTIAL INCREASES IN INTERNATIONAL AND LONG-HAUL PASSENGERS
TO BE INVESTED BY 2026 (BIGGEST INVESTMENT PROGRAMME IN THE AIRPORT’S HISTORY).
