Take your umbrella and walk to the nearest plane
L'Express has a story about a new aeroport in Marseille. Marseille-Provence 2 (or MP2 in Fast French) will be the first 'aerostation' that only houses lowcost carriers. The aeroport is lowcost itself, too. So for exemple, there are no gates to the planes. At boarding time, you just walk outside and find the stairs to the nearest plane. So don't forget your umbrella...
MP2 will be the French headquarters of Ryanair. It has flights to Francfort, London, Glasgow, Oslo, Madrid and Eindhoven, among others.
By the way, the aeroport isn't exactly new. What really happened, is that the French refurbished an old freight terminal. But hey, who cares? Remember MP2 is the first aerostation for lowcost carriers in Europe. The French nation can be proud, once again.
