PASSENGER TRANSPORT FLOWS IN THE WESTERN MEDITERRANEAN
Long term evolution of transmediterranean flows of passengers
Passenger flows between the two shores of the Western Mediterranean have continued to increase in the last two decades, although increases have occurred via the air mode. The marine flows of passengers have remained almost stable during the period.
Passenger flows at ports
Maritime passenger flows are concentrated in a limited number of ports. In addition, these flows are particularly concentrated in the ports around the Strait of Gibraltar.
Passenger flows at airports
The main air passenger flows between South Europe and the Maghreb are concentrated in a limited number of airports. In the European shore, Paris’ two airports clearly stand out as the main passenger hubs to the Maghreb. In the Southern shore of the Mediterranean, the flows are concentrated in the airports of Casablanca, Marrakech, Alger, and Tunis.
