Middle East Airlines boosts Beirut capacity

MIDDLEEast Airlines has increased capacity on Heathrow flights to its Lebanese hub of Beirut.

The new frequency sees non-stop services rise from five weekly to nine.

Extra flights leave on Mondays, Thursday, Fridays and Sundays.

MEA said the new schedule will provide greater opportunities to connect onto Middle East destinations. The airline has regular flights to the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. MEA recently launched twice weekly Beirut-Teheran services.

Commercial manager for the UK George Macarty said the boost in frequency was designed to increase MEA's market share.

He said the new services were night flights, which will provide passengers with opportunities for a full day's business in Lebanon.
