Beirut Airport Expansion

Posted (8 years 6 months 5 days 2 hours ago) and read 6765 times:

I recently began thinking about how in the summer time, MEA is having to use gates in BEY that are meant for other airlines as their own gates on the west pier sometimes get full entirely.

Then I got to thinking about how MEA is planning to add 2 additional Airbuses in 2007 and 2008 plus 50/70-seat regional aircraft (possibly regional jets).

As some of you know, MEA uses the western gates in BEY, those are gates 13 through 23 of which 22 is not used because it is a bus boarding gate. That means MEA has 10 jetway gates. MEA at the moment has 9 aircraft and there are periods of the day (late at night) when all or almost all of the aircraft are in Beirut. In a few years, MEA will have 11 aircraft, not including the regional aircraft they will be getting.

MEA's gates are also used by MEA's airline partners, Air France and Qatar Airways, plus airlines that are handled by MEA's ground handling company, MEAG.

Either a small expansion will be needed, or all airlines besides MEA will need to move to the east gates (gates 1-12).

I recently got to thinking of how Beirut can add one more gate without expanding the terminal. Beirut airport is already short one gate from what it was originally to have.

BEY was supposed to be a 24 gate airport, 22 of which have jetways. However, instead, one of the gates was converted to a cafeteria and never had a jetway attached to it, so instead BEY is a 23 gate airport, 21 of which have jetways.

With a small investment, BEY could very easily become a 24-gate airport as it originally was intended.







When BEY originally opened, it had two cafeterias, one in each pier.



The one in the east is located on an area of the pier specifically built for the cafeteria.

However, the one on the west is located in an area that was originally supposed to become a gate.

Here is a shot of the west pier taken from the cafeteria on the east pier. Immediately to the right of the Royal Jordanian A310 is where the cafeteria that was originally supposed to be a gate is located:



Here is a shot of the cafeteria that was originally supposed to be a gate, as you can see, a jetway was never completely attached:



It is to my understanding that these two cafeterias were closed in the summer and better improved cafeterias were opened inside the piers themselves.

Since this has been done, they can convert the area on the west pier to a gate as it was originally intended.

It is to my understanding that they decided not to turn it into a gate because the area was deemed to tight to fit an aircraft and I can clearly see why. However, with MEA planning to get 50/70-seat regional aircraft, this gate would be perfect for regional jets. There are jetways that are capable of docking onto regional jets such as the CRJ200 and CRJ700. If MEA gets something like an EMB-170, then almost any jetway is capable of docking onto them.

2005 wasn't a good year for BEY because of the turbulent events that occured following Hariri's assassination, however the end of 2005 saw a good improvement. 2005 traffic numbers will be lower than 2004, but hopefully not as low as originally predicted.

Let's hope 2006 turns out to be a better year.

There are long term plans to expand the airport by adding 7 gates, some of which can handle A380s, however, this is still years off. I think this additional gate however would be a wise move to be done within the next two years, before MEA gets its 2 additional Airbuses and regional aircraft.

BEY seems to need this expansion because the design is a bit cramped and they should only expect more traffic as Beirut becomes more of a tourist attraction and if AC finally gets their YUL-BEY service. Strange that they haven't taken advantage of the revenue from commercial restaurants.

This isn't so as of last year.

It's quite silly actually. Apparantly there was a dispute with a contractor that was given exclusivity in providing food concessions in the airport. I think Abela which provides catering services to many airports around the world.

Up until last year, those two crappy cafeterias (and they really were crappy) were the only ones providing food in the entire airport. Quite embarassing.

That's besides the Duty Free shops which sell Lebanese sweets, nuts, etc. of course.

Last year apparantly they reached some agreement, maybe the contract ended, I have no idea. But two restaurants were opened in the arrivals area, one in the departures area (Japanese sushi restaurant), and two NICE cafes in the piers which replaced the two crappy cafes.

There is still room for more food concessions, 2 large restaurants at least.

Hey, how about turning those two gates into multiple-flight gates with aircraft parked in remote stands, whereby pax will be shuttled to and from their aircraft. Is there any room on the grounds of BEY for additional remote parking stalls?

BEY has I believe between between 6 to 8 remote stands, however they are used by VIP aircraft, but can accomodate airliners.

There are two gates in BEY that don't have jetways and are bus boarding gates and those are gate 4 on the east pier and gate 22 on the west pier.

Take a look at this:

If ME doesn't care about connecting passengers, why don't they just adjust their flight schedules to avoid a crush of flights all at the same time? I assume that gate space is probably most difficult late afternoon, when all of those flights are leaving for the Gulf? Why just not spread them out more? They aren't building a hub (big mistake on their part, but that has been discussed ad nauseum here).

It's about timing convenience. Flights to Europe depart in the morning while flights to the Gulf depart in the evening.

MEA doesn't want to operate flights past midnight. The exception is the 2:05AM flight to Paris, but that is to allow passengers to make connections on Air France. And the West Africa flights, but those are only a couple times a week.

Infact, the flight to Kuwait overnights in Kuwait because they don't want to operate the flight in the middle of the night.

In the summer time though, it's completely different. MEA completely maximizes fleet utilization of its aircraft running them on a 24-hour basis.

Just by looking at the pictures and reading MEA's fleet expansion plan, the airport is in need of additrional gates not just parking, however where would these be built, as you've mentioned a currently undeveloped area is used for VIP aircraft, and unless some new VIP arrangement is made the construction cseem to be possible in extending the current terminals, but is that also possible? Beyrut stands at the oppotunity of the inter-region growth, hope the planners will succed.

They've had the opportunity to take advantage of this for years and years. I don't have any hope of them doing anything about it at this point. Sooner or later another carrier with cheaper fares will come in and take all their traffic, and that will be the end of it.

They opened a General Aviation Terminal in the northern part of the airport last June and all VIP aircraft now park there.

So those parking stands are probably empty now.

I know there are drawings of an expanded terminal, but I haven't seen them. The expansion calls for adding 7 gates.

Perhaps north of gate 23 on the west side which currently has remote stands or north of gate 1 which has a trashed out old run down ancient cargo building that is an eyesore.

Quoting N1120A (Reply 10):

Yes, I believe they are still trying to find vendors to make use of restaurant space in the airport that still isn't being used. There is space for 2-3 more large restaurants.

Quoting FOMEA (Reply 11):

To be honest with you, I'm not entirely sure. I used to think at first that Gates 1, 2, 3, and 23 are A380 ready but I believe Gate 23 and maybe Gate 1 are the only ones that are actually A380 ready.

Gates 2 and 3 are dual jetway gates designed for the 747, but I'm not sure if they can accomodate the A380.

The future 7-gate expansion will include some gates that can accomodate the A380.

Quoting FOMEA (Reply 11):

The runways are, yes. Some of the taxiways are as well.

BEY got an Antonov AN-124 recently, so I am sure it is A380 ready, the gates may be an issue though...

As I said, I think one of the proposals for the expansion of the terminal is from where gate 1 is. They would demolish that old cargo building you are talking about, but then the issue remains is the TMA hangers which are private property since they belong to TMA (although the land itself is government land and TMA leases it). They'd have to reach some sort of agreement with TMA.

It's pretty complicated...

In the meantime, I think they should add this 1 gate.

TMA was contracting other carriers to fly for them because their 707s were grounded by the Lebanese Civil Aviation Authority (LCAA) and can't afford to renew their fleet due to their serious financial problems.

Whether they are being used or not, they are still TMA property.

No, they can expand towards the JR Executive hanger on the west side also.

Nope, the former terminal no longer exists.

The current terminal you are familiar with was built in two phases. The eastern half (gates 1-12) was completed in 1998 built immediately adjacent to the old terminal.

Take a look at this picture and you will see what I mean, look on the far left side:



The west wing was also completed, but it could not be used until they demolished the old terminal and built the western half of the new terminal to finally attach it.

After the east side of the new terminal became fully operational, they demolished the old terminal and began construction on the western half of the new terminal, this was completed I believe by 2000, but was not inaugurated until 2002. Someone correct me if I'm wrong though.

As a company....well maybe the executives meet up on Saturdays and play cards with each other...

I think you get the idea.  Smile

Quoting ME AVN FAN (Reply 19):

I guess so, I honestly have no idea what is new with TMA as they rarely speak out. They fired a bunch of pilots last year who weren't working for over two years to begin with.

Last I read is that TMA is trying to find a buyer or is hoping for a merger with MEA, both of which are unlikely.

Quoting ME AVN FAN (Reply 19):

I'm confused, which runway are you talking about? The old landing runway, runway 17/35? Or are you talking about the runway that protrudes into the sea, runway 16/34? Or are you talking about the take-off runway, runway 03/21? Or maybe you're talking about the old 03/21?

The old 03/21 was converted to a taxiway for the new 03/21 which began service in 1998.

The old 17/35 is still in operation, but rarely used. However, with the airport planning to become a major hub for corporate aviation now that the general aviation terminal is complete and that plans are under way to construct 12 small hangers for it, 17/35 may become busier in the near future.

if you mean Vatche Mitilian, he as I understood him, in recent months has been extremely busy at work, not least to the damage occurred to their premises. OVerall, BEY traffic accdg to a former MEA steward has been down by roughly 20% if compared with the year before and not much new things in evidence. Maybe "BA" can tell you more.
