Construction of a world-class VIP facility at Beirut International Airport is set to begin next month.

The development of the tarmac has been completed and the frame of the terminal is complete as well. Next month, the project will embark to the full next level in which construction of the terminal continues and the construction of 17 hangers begins.

The terminal will include 4 spacious lounges.

The entire project will cost $33 million.

Industry experts say it will be one of the best in the world. Executive aircraft use in Beirut has been on a consistent rise from all of the world, but especially from the Gulf.

At the moment, VIP aircraft park infront of the gates at the passenger terminal as shown below:


With the VIP terminal, private planes will no longer use the passenger terminal leaving gates free to airlines.

The VIP terminal will be located on the top left part of the airport just north of the MEA hangers and Lebanese Army hangers to the right of runway 18/36. It will be built in the vacant patch of ground just above the big white-roofed building (which might be the frame of the terminal):


When complete, the terminal will look like this:


VIP passengers will be able to enjoy dedicated passport control and Lebanese Customs facilities. As a result, they will no longer have to go through the often crowded passport control and Lebanese customs areas in the passenger terminal.

Here is an article about the project:

The article mentions that charters to Iraq from Beirut have been in extremely high demand.

This is great news for BEY and the executive terminal looks very nice from the outside. The article mentions that it'll be completed by next month. So, I'm assuming that work has been going on at this project's site for a while. I honestly haven't realized how important executive travel at BEY International until now. The article mention a jump of 140% in one year, which I think is astonishing by all measures!

Thanks BA for the article. By the way, do you know if any other projects are taking place or will be taking place at Beirut International in the meantime?
