I am on this flight as well. Would also be interested in any answers.

From Google maps - I saw that a tax would take 25 mins to get to the airport and the metro with walking would take 48 mins.

However the above is not after a game and I would interested to see what are our best options? Would the Olsc put on a bus? Should we prebook a taxi? etc...

OLSC are thinking of organising a bus back after the match, email them with your contact details and flight details olsc@leinsterrugby.ie

It's more than doable but will mean getting the metro (two stations beside the ground) back to town to get train or the Aircoach. If the OLSC bus goes ahead it's a more direct option.

Takes about 30 mins from the city centre.

Excellent so it looks fairly possible, OLSC transfer would take a lot of the transport stress out of the game, will e mail them, always been fantastic in the past.

The flight has now changed from 20:30 to 21:20. So there should be no problem.

To go from the airport to the stadium, you have first to catch a shuttle to Saint Charles train station, and then the metro.
Take care, the traffic is sometimes heavy between Marignane airport and Marseille.
