Stress-free travel from Marseille

Corsair and the SNCF (French Rail) have teamed up to create TGVair, a convenient 3-in-1 travel package.

Whether you’re flying to Saint-Denis, Fort-de-France or any other Corsair destination, with TGVair the first leg of your trip from Marseille will always involve catching a high-speed train (TGV) to Paris. Upon arriving in Paris, a shuttle will be waiting outside the station to take you to the airport (Orly Sud), where you’ll subsequently board a Corsair flight to your final destination. All three of these legs are included in one single reservation.

When it comes to convenience, nothing matches the TGVair travel package. One booking covers your entire journey, from the Marseille train station to your final destination. But that’s not all. TGVair also offers the assurance that you’ll be able to depart for your vacation, even if your train or flight is delayed or canceled. And if you’re traveling from Marseille, you’ll benefit from a train station located just steps away from the city center.

Saint-Charles Station in Marseille is easily accessible via the city’s outstanding network of public transportation. If you’re coming by car, the station is also equipped with ample public parking. Finally, you’ll find all you need inside the station, including stores for last-minute purchases.

TGVair also takes care of the shuttle between the train station in Paris and the airport.

Marseille is also the ideal starting point for a trip to Africa.
