With the land border with Israel closed and the Syrian border off limits, most travellers to Lebanon arrive and depart by air.
Airports & Airlines
Beirut–Rafic Hariri International Airport is Lebanon’s only airport and main entry point into the country. The national carrier, Middle East Airlines (www.mea.com.lb), has an extensive network including flights to and from Europe and to the Arab world. Many other Middle Eastern airlines fly into Beirut, as well as some European ones.
Departure tax is included in the price of a ticket.
The only land crossings from Lebanon are into Syria, which has been off limits for several years. The Israel–Lebanon land border has not been open for many years.
There has previously been a ferry service from Turkey to Tripoli in Lebanon, but it was suspended at time of research.
