Transportation to Beirut Airport from the City Center

Beirut, the capital and largest city of Lebanon, offers limited but comfortable transportation facilities between the city center and the airport, as well as the historical and natural beauties it has. You can be at the airport in a very short time with taxis or private cars that you can easily find in the city center.

Taxi

Since there is no official transportation vehicle to the Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport, which is the only civil airport in the country since 1954 and was established for the replacement of the much smaller Bir Hassan Airfield, taxis become compulsory for passengers. Taxis are also open for bargaining for the average amount you will pay for the travel of about 15 minutes. In the city where taxi drivers speak French and English, taxis are air-conditioned and comfortable.

Private Vehicle

It is also a good option to go to the airport from the city center by private vehicle. Because in Beirut having a population of 1.5 million, it is extremely normal to encounter a traffic like in Istanbul. There are many alternatives but 2 major roads directly connect the city to the airport. The first one is the road that is connected to the airport via Ahmad Mukhtar Beyhum and Hafez Al-Assad street.

The second one is the road arriving at the airport through the Gamal Abdel Nasser Street, Ruhollah Khomeini Street and Umar ibn Al-Khattab Street. By using the either road, you can arrive at the airport within 15 minutes and can leave your vehicle to the parking lot with a capacity of 2350 vehicles.

Airport Information

The airport, which hosts 6 million passengers per year, aims to host 35 million passengers annually as a result of the developments in the process up to 2035. It also offers free internet service for airport passengers. The only airport of Lebanon, the country having the most non-Muslim population in the Middle East, has places of worship for every religion.

There are a few cafes and restaurants as well as a Japanese restaurant right now at the terminals. The terminals are expected to have more facilities when they are expanded and new terminals are opened in the future.

The airport, which welcome millions of mainly European tourists as well as Lebanese living abroad, has a very interesting Beirut Duty Free. There is also a car gallery in Beirut Duty Free.
