The company operated scheduled lines between Marseilles and Port-la-Nouvelle (Languedoc) and Port-Vendres (Roussillon); Marseilles and Toulon, Saint-Tropez, Cannes, Nice and Monaco; Nice and Bastia and Ajaccio (Corsica); Ajaccio and the smaller Corsican ports; Marseilles and Oran, Saida, Tangiers, Kenitra and Casablanca.
