The study released by “Air Journal” reveals that Marrakesh, in Morocco, was the preferred destination of the French in 2022 for the second consecutive year, mainly due to its price. Last year, the cost of a round trip plane trip fell by 35% compared to 2019, reveals the “Air Journal”.
Portugal also attracted French tourists in 2022. The capital, Lisbon, occupied second place, followed by Porto in third position. Istanbul was the fourth choice, after Barcelona, which was in fifth place among the main destinations of the year that has just ended.
This ranking also includes those known as Overseas Territories, with Saint-Denis, the main city of Réunion Island, in sixth position with an average return trip of 861 euros, while Guadeloupe represented by Pointe-à-Pitre is seventh. The French also took their holidays in their own country and, in this case, Nice is in eighth place.
To close this ranking is North America. Montreal is ranked 9th. The round trip costs an average of 544 euros. “Air Journal” finally highlights the fall of New York, which gave its tenth place to Fort-de-France, Martinique, whose average round trip price increased by 15% between 2020 and 2021.
