Munster's legions of fans will have to dig deep if they are to make it to the Stade Velodrome to witness Rob Penney's men going toe-to-toe with French giants Toulon.

Ryanair announced a special flight last night from Cork to Marseille with a lead price of €299 for a ticket which could rise as the seats are snapped up.

Aer Lingus will make a decision today on whether to begin its Dublin to Marseille route a week early to accommodate Munster fans, the service ordinarily begins on May 1.

If they do manage to adjust their schedule it will mean that two flights will embark from Dublin on Saturday, April 26.

An Aer Lingus flight from Dublin to Nice on Friday April 25 is already booked out while a Ryanair flight from Shannon to Nice departing from April 25 and returning three days later cost €350.

Ryanair also flies to Carcassonne but when if fans choose this option, they will still have 310 kilometres to travel to make it to Marseille.
