Lebanon’s Public Works and Transport Minister, Ali Hamieh, recently announced a significant boost in air connectivity between Lebanon and Europe. Lufthansa has resumed its regular flights connecting Frankfurt and Beirut.
Additionally, Swiss International Air Lines has restarted its Zurich-Beirut route, while Eurowings is set to recommence flights to Beirut from Hamburg, Berlin, and Düsseldorf.
These developments, led by the Lufthansa Group, Europe’s largest airline conglomerate, signify a revitalization of Lebanon’s air travel sector.
This move follows an earlier increase in flights from Lebanon to various destinations across Europe, the Middle East, the Gulf, and Africa.
These changes come as a positive turn after the national carrier, Middle East Airlines-Air Liban (MEA), had to reduce its number of flights due to regional tensions.
