Quoting OD720 (Reply 55):
If rwy 16/34 hasn't suffered a direct hit, we may see limited operations soon
That's good news! It's the major runway used for international flights! Can you be sure that it wasn't hit?
|Quoting HBDAN (Reply 61):|
CNN reports all 3 runways damaged and impossible to be used for take off or landings.
|Quoting L-188 (Reply 51):
Well at least the solution to fix the runway is simple enough---clean out the hole and fill it with concrete.
|Quoting Pulkovokiwi (Reply 67):|
Are there any other airports near Beirut which MEA and others can operate from.
|Quoting Airplanenut (Reply 54):|
Honestly, when there's a state of war, it's a sad reality that people will die. I'd like to think that Israel has gone above and beyond to be sure they're aim is deadly accurate and civilian casualities are as minimized as possible. Was there a risk? Sure, but clearly there was a strategic reason to damage the airport, and it was done at a time that allowed for minimal chances of casualties.
|Quoting Newark777 (Reply 24):|
So how is this going to effect MEA?
|Quoting ChiefT (Reply 88):|
I read that Israel wants to cut off Lebanon from international connections.
Israel said today its naval vessels were in Lebanon's territorial waters and blocking access to ports
|Quoting Spinkid (Reply 23):|
I'm assuming their must be aircraft parked at the airport. They could be stuck their for sometime, or did they have enough warning to shuttle everything out.
|Quoting LTBEWR (Reply 95):|
Can there be sanctions put on Israel's airlines, access to TLV
|Quoting RJpieces (Reply 11):|
They said it isn't clear if the shelling came from the IAF or Israeli Navy gunboats...
|Quoting BA (Reply 22):|
|Quoting RJpieces (Reply 25):|
.I wonder if it was IAF attacks or Israeli Navy shelling.
|Quoting BA (Reply 38):|
Cyprus Airways and possibly the morning Royal Jordanian flight.

My wife ,daughter and son are in BEY and supposed to come back on 21 July with Malev to OSL via BUD.I dont know what would happen now
|Quoting JoKeR (Reply 91):|
Bombing of civilian airports is something that we in Serbia know all too well about. Very sad news!
|Quoting Aleksandar (Reply 101):|
I'm sure they'll be fine.
|Quoting BA (Reply 31):|
There are 2/3 day cruises between Cyprus/Lebanon/Syria, but don't have a specific schedule.
|Quoting Cedars747 (Reply 102):|
10x Aleksandar ! but i hear on the news that Israel want to bombard the road to DAM
|Quoting EurostarVA (Reply 100):|
Inside source at MEA (a pilot) says one runway is active for emergency departures only.
The Lebanese transport minister said that filling the runway damage with temporary concrete would take "at least 48 hours".
|Quoting Emirates2005 (Reply 106):|
I know this would not involve any passangers present on board the aircraft, however if the airlines do not want to loose their million $$$ aircraft due to potential further bombing damage, I think it would be wise to move them ASAP out of BEY.
