Middle East Airlines to resume flights to Erbil

Lebanon’s national carrier Middle East Airlines

announced

that it would resume flights from Beirut to Erbil starting April 3. Flights will take place every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. This is good news to Lebanese nationals that are living in Erbil. They were disappointed when the flights were suspended on September 27 following a decision from government authorities to suspend international flights. Approximately 6,000 Lebanese people live in Erbil. They work in business, banking, tourism, and education. The Lebanese French University is the first private university of its kind in Erbil.
