Terminal 2 (the Low-Cost Terminal) at Marseille Airport is usually very busy. When you enter the building there are many check-in counters to check-in your bag but you'll only receive a label here and you need to bring your bag to the baggage drop off yourself. After the security check, there is just one hall with seating area, some shops and some places where you can get food. Usually, there is not much place to sit because there are so many people. Sometimes there are some free seats upstairs (if you follow the sign to the toilets). Unfortunately, you can't already go to your gate to wait there because your gate is only indicated 30 min before departure...

We travelled from Marseille airport with EasyJet in July. There were only two lines for check in, and neither of them moved for 20 minutes. We were just stood in the ‘Speedy Boarding’ queue for 20 minutes without an explanation. Everyone around us was asking what the problem was, no-one knew. When the queue started moving, it was very slow - seemed a very manual process.
We ate at the ‘Cantine des Voyageurs’ which had only one server, covering the till, hot drinks and everything, at her own leisurely pace with no sense of urgency or even a smile. The baguettes were all wrapped in cellophane but left open at one end so going hard. Nice choice of cakes set out ‘deli style’ that you could select from yourself & take to the till, but there were lots of flies on them and on the dining tables,.

It was a pleasure arriving in Marseille and airport was fast but returning to my country was quite a hassle as there was no information which was the gate to go for boarding even though I had priority boarding there were no rules for queuing! I love Marseille and will definitely return but I wish boarding will be more smooth. offers free airport information through its own websites and partners.
