Beirut Airport Is Welcoming Visitors in a Warm Remarkable Way
The country is welcoming visitors with open arms.

It has become obvious that Lebanon is putting a huge effort to promote the tourism sector this season. We've been witnessing, and in the past couple of months, many projects and measures that aim to attract tourists and ensure that their trip runs smoothly and their stay be the most enjoyable.

After implementing a partial expansion project at Beirut-Rafic Hariri International Airport and completing its first stage just these past days, the airport took a new initiative under the slogans Bayt Baytak(This is your home) and Welcome in order to greet the arriving visitors in a warm and special way.

In this regard, welcoming signs are now displayed in various areas in the airport, mainly in the arrival hall, greeting and welcoming the visitors to our country.

The welcoming initiative doesn't stop at that. Employees of the Airport Duty-Free Department, in coordination with the Ministry of Tourism, are standing by the arrival lanes, offering appealing varieties of nuts, sweets, and local natural soaps to all the arriving visitors.

The expressions of the arriving travelers have been priceless. From tired and stressed by their flights to a prompt switch into happily surprised and de-stressed, the arrivals are getting more than they could have ever expected, smiling and voicing out their admiration and thanks at this welcome-home initiative that makes them feel esteemed.

As per our government's expectation, the main influx would be probably from Saudi Arabia that lifted its travel warning back in February, after a 15-month ban, the UAE that is expected to do so any time now as recently promised, and from Italy upon the agreement achieved by our Ambassador to Italy, Mira Daher.

In a recent report, The National News Agency (NNA) stated that the beginning of the month of June appeared encouraging in terms of airport traffic.

In the first ten days of June, the passenger traffic increased by 33.7% recording 258 and 702 thousand passengers compared to 193 and 391 thousand passengers during the same period last year in 2018.

The report also stated that it is expected that the coming period will witness an increase in the number of passengers at the airport, especially as the academic year has come to an end in many countries, marking the start of summer vacations.

This touristic season will give a fresh start to a new Lebanon.

Thanks President Aoun for bringing political and security stability to be followed by an economic growth.

Thanks to Bassil for his concerns of many touristic sites all over Lebanon; including the religious ones that he is working on from Jbeil to Batroun to Koura and Bchareh

I got a free ghyar zeit w nafekh dwelib as my retyrn flight got delayed ?
Will it still be a zoo late August when we’re trying to head back?

Separately, any views on spending a day in Jezzine with young kids (love nature, can walk up to ~10k)?
Last year, we did the Shouf cedar réservation, faqra roman ruins, Enfeh’s salt areas and they loved it

I cant say for august, but in june it was pretty fluid, took me less than 15min to get out of the plane go through customs collect my luggage and head to the exit.

I guess in august it will be much more crowded but i think u’ll feel the difference vs last summer

I’m less worried about the arrival to Lebanon. We usually come after mid August and the wait is limited. I’m more worried about leaving Lebanon where we can wait in line outside for hours!
