Ryanair now flies from BER to Marseille three times a week. This winter, the airline will start flying to the popular port city in southern France on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Marseille, located in the south-east of Provence, is worth a visit at any time of year. The second largest and at the same time oldest city in France is not only characterised by impressive sights but also by a mild climate, plenty of sun, charm and a wealth of landscapes.
The Calanques National Park, which is still quite young and stretches over thousands of hectares of land and water, lies just outside Marseilles. The park, which is known for its fjord-like bays, imposing limestone cliffs and its unique flora and fauna, is a popular hiking and climbing area. Winter and spring are the best times for hiking and climbing as the area is closed to tourists (except for the hiking trail on the coast) from July to around mid-September.
This winter Ryanair is offering travellers a mixture of sun, winter and city destinations. In addition to Marseille, these include destinations that are returning to service for the first time since the start of the pandemic. Marrakech will be back on the flight schedule twice a week (Wednesdays, Saturdays) once direct flights become possible again. There are daily flights to Tel Aviv, and from December even twice a day, two days a week (Wednesdays, Sundays). From December 3rd, the airline will fly twice a week (Mondays and Fridays) to Lappeenranta, Finland, which offers numerous winter sports activities. In addition to its new destinations, Ryanair is increasing the frequency of flights on routes to the Canary Islands and Málaga and will once again offer daily flights to Madrid, Bologna and Brussels as well as Bucharest.
