Hi everybody

Needing to attend a meeting in the morning in Tours and needing to go to a party in Aix en Provence in the evening, I decided to take the plane for some reasons :
- I wanted to try the airport of Tours(TUF)
-The airport is located at 5min by walking from my meeting (accesible with the tramway from the city-center)
-I never took FR and I wanted to try their so famous model.

I booked the fly one month ago for 23€ (with two cabin luggage and a priority acces)

I arrive in TUF one hour before the flight

The FIDS (one flight for Marrakech and an other one for Porto took off in the morning) :

Despite the airport is very small, it has a restaurant :

Before passing the security check, someone from RYR staff checked our boarding pass and the good respect of our luggage creating a small queue

Two luggage carpets in TUF. Enough for the traffic of this airport

The security checks would be passed in less than 2 minutes with a very nice staff.
I arrive in one of the two boarding gates : one for the priorities and one for the other
The way to show the destination doesn't look very professionnal

We understand who is the master of the place

When I arrived at the gate, our plane was about too land


photo img_0622


Our plane arrived and parked so he doesn't need anyone for the pushback



The boarding is launched on time with the respect of the priority

It's always a pleasure to be so near of an airplane by accessing the aircraft thanks to the tarmac

Doar instant for the fans :

The seat given by FR : 26E


photo img_0641

At the opposite of what I was expecting, the pitch is very ok


photo img_0642

However, I noticed our flight was operated by MaltaAir and not bt Ryanair


photo img_0644

After boarding, I changed my seat for the 33F with 3 seats only for me.

We leave on time

mood-lightning is activated

I was surprised not to see any add on the racks at the opposite of what I saw on your reports about Ryanair.


photo img_0650

We take off.
Then, a turn to the left.
We oversee the Loire and the city center of Tours.

Then, Saint Pierre des Corps

The Cher

Then, we overpassed the coutryside of Tours.


photo img_0668

Yhen, we will get 10min of heavy turbulences while the crew will continue to make the service. It was strange for me to see that despite the heavy turbulences, Ryanair keeps the service continuing while other airlines won't.
The crew was very professionnal and nice. Despite their French was not so good, they tried to answer all the demands the passengers had.
They would make 3 turns of BOB and made announcements to announce the special deals. It really looked like I was watching adds on TV.

However, I will buy an airplan model.
For 10€, I will receive a model of a B737Max8 FR.


photo img_0669

Surprising, as even in the BoB magazine, it is also a B737-800 classic.


photo img_0670-26592

I think FR anticipated the arrival of their new airplane before Boeing had issues with it.
We start our descent with the Mediterranean sea for landscape.


photo img_0673

Half-turn over the calanques.


photo img_0677

Then, over Marseille


photo img_0678

The Vélodrome stadium

Notre Dame de la Garde

The old port


photo img_0683

We are well flying over Marseille

Then, landing 20min before time at MRS under a very nice sun. 
B757 DHL

Finally, thanks to our B737-800


photo img_0703-35259

I would be out of the airport in 5min and will take an express coach (L40) for 7€, that will take me in 30min in the city-center of Aix en Provence.
