Nice Terminal Map Of Beirut International Airport

While I was in Beirut, I saw this nice map. I have never found a map of the airport anywhere on the internet, and when I saw this map at the airport I was happy.

Thought I'd share it with you:


Here is the real thing from up in the mountains:


It has 23 gates, 21 of which are equipped with jetways (the other two, Gates 4 and 22 are just bus boarding gates). Two of the 21 jetway gates are dual jetway gates (Gates 2 and 3).

It's capable of handling 6 million passengers a year and is currently handling 2.4 million. So it's still got a long ways to go before it reaches full capacity.

Regards

Scott4AA,

I wish I had a better digital camera. As you could probably tell, it didn't focus very well which is why it's soft.

Regards

Nice photo anyway BA, good to see Beirut pulling itself back together again after all the strife and disaster!

That Mediterranean Sea is awesome! I bet the beaches are better.

Simply an awesome place to do spotting.

Nice photos!

I've heard that Beirut has been extensively rebuilt over the past ten years and is well on its way to becoming the 'jewel of the Middle East' (as it was known before the war started in 1975.)

It looks like they've done a fantastic job on the airport. Hopefully it can become a major hub for the region (although DXB has already done a pretty good job there.)

I'd love to visit sometime - has it become safe enough for tourists?

That's the plan.  Smile

I'd say it's the safest Arab country. Tourism is definately on the rise. This summer I saw Polish, Italiens, Germans, French, British, and even Spanish tourists. I even saw some Americans.

Saw a few Asian tourists, but not many.

BA

It indeed is an awesome place to spot,only if there was more traffic day time,as you probably know about 80 -85% of the traffic arrives night time.
And tourism is actually growing,this summer was really good,hope it grows even higher.
Hope you liked our airport BA.

Regards

Good to know tourism hasn't been affected by the latest western imperial adventure in the region. I was last there in September 2001 (left on the 10th, no less). Not only was it my last flightdeck landing, but I was actually standing up (jumpseats were both occupied). Quite a ride, as you can imagine, speeding down the approach surrounded by high rise buildings. The new runway was finished but hadn't opened yet so we went right over downtown; presumably that doesn't happen so much anymore.

It sure would be nice to see some more traffic at BEY, I was staying in the hills (a town called Shemlan) which gave me the exact same view of the airport as in BA's photo, and I only saw a couple of movements all week - but if the 80% figure is true about night time movements then maybe that goes some way to explaining why.

Apparently the PM (the Solidere guy, can't remember his name) took quite a lot of stick for building such a big airport but I think it was the right thing to do, squeezing extra capacity out of an airport that's full is almost impossible (see: Heathrow).

It is indeed very true that 80% of the flights come in at night between 9PM and 3AM.

I'd say about 70% of BEY's gates fill up at night.

The terminal is a zoo, crowded with so many people.

Early in the morning is when MEA has it's European departures so there are quite a few take-offs then.

Regards
