Anybody knows which airlines have secured rights to resume flying to BEY as of today. What flight frequencies (weekly) do they have?

Egyptair had provisionally aimed to start services last Monday (21/08) but due to the restrictions in place the airline deferred the relaunch until further notice.

Lufthansa were to start services last Wednesday (23/08):

but later retracted it:

at present, the Israelis, who still keep Beirut / Lebanon under siege and under blockade, only allow ME and RJ flights between BEY + AMM, nothing else. Kofi Annan now, over this weekend, will try to talk common sense with the Israelis about exactly this.

Just to reiterate; Royal Jordanian and MEA are the only airlines "allowed" to operate into Beirut. Several airlines applied to reopen their services, including Lufthansa, British Airways, Air France, Emirates.. all were denied landing rights.

Connected, a Royal Air Maroc with 166 passengers was turned back after Israel refused them landing rights. The aircraft, type of which is unknown, did not have enough fuel to return to Morocco and diverted to Larnaca.

Israel may have stopped their bombing, but their destruction of the country through continues by grinding the economy to a standstill.
It's sad when you see all of the re developed bridges and roads, and airports, repaired just a few years earlier, at great expense, once again destroyed.

On the up side, tourism to Israel dived 40% this season
