I thought everyone can fly to or from Beirut from anywhere. So Varig, JAL, Air Canada, BMI Baby and Air Niugini have fifth freedom rights at BEY - everyone except El Al (obviously). Hell, I have fifth freedom rights at BEY (I don't even own a car, let alone a 737, but anyway). So I don't see how this is news, until Syrianair start flying these routes (BEY to MAN on an RB 747SP - sounds good to me).
fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

All three of these routes are fairly feasible at the right time of the year.
Madrid and Manchester have very large Lebanese and Syrian population centers. This of course would make them good routes throughout the summer season. It's becoming increasingly easier for Lebanese to fly back to Lebanon as more service becomes direct.
Does anybody have news about the Damascus International Airport renovations?
I have seen their airport on DVD and it was horrid in my opinion. Small run-down terminal building with only three or four jetways. Also a very bad taxiway system.
