This grand-looking three-tiered cake was baked to mark the start of ASL Airlines’ weekly service from Montpellier to Oudja in Morocco, a route that originates at Paris CDG. The French airport now offers connections to five cities in the North African nation, namely Casablanca, Fez, Marrakech, Nador and now Oudja.
- ASL Airlines has commenced six new sectors in the past week. The first three link Paris CDG (CDG) via Montpellier (MPL) with Oudja (OUD) in Morocco, while the remaining three connect Bordeaux (BOD) via Toulon-Hyéres (TLN) with Oran (ORN) in Algeria. Started 27 June, the carrier will fly between CDG and Oudja three times weekly, with one of these weekly (Wednesdays) services calling in at Montpellier en-route, before continuing on to the Moroccan city. In a similar vein, but beginning on 2 July, ASL will operate between Bordeaux and Oran twice-weekly (Mondays and Wednesdays), with one rotation stopping in Toulon-Hyéres (Mondays), before departing to the Algerian destination. Three of these sectors will face direct competition – namely CDG to Montpellier (Air France; four times daily); Bordeaux to Toulon-Hyéres (Volotea; twice-weekly); and Bordeaux to Oran (Air Algérie; twice-weekly). All flights are operated by ASL’s fleet of 737s. See how Montpellier Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
