Beirut International Airport

Beirut International Airport (BIA) is a vital facility that plays a major role in linking Lebanon with the outside world and enriching the business and tourist sectors of the economy. Its latest development is resulting in a substantial increase in the number of tourists, and attracting major airline companies and increasing transit traffic.

BIA is located in the Khaldeh suburb south of the capital and around 8kms distant from Beirut downtown. It became operational in 1954 and is the only civil airport of the country. The old airport was renovated in 1977, and the present runways were rehabilitated between 1982 and 1984.

The execution of the first phase of the new airport started in 1994 and was inaugurated in 1998. However, the second phase was inaugurated on the fifth of July 2000 and the operation started on the sixth of June 2002. The total area covered by BIA is around 7 million square meters and the overall area of the terminal building is 150,000 square meters. BIA has been redeveloped to handle 6 million passengers per year and to receive 30 aircrafts at the same time. It has 84 passenger counters, 21 passenger gates, and the parking area has a capacity of 2250 cars. Future development plans aim at handling 16 million passengers by the year 2035.
