Beirut overview

Despite its troubled, violent past, the Lebanese capital of Beirut is an eclectic, mesmerising cultural haven. Book a flight to Beirut, and you’ll be swept away by the interwoven tapestry of Middle Eastern and European culture filled with nightlife, cafes, beaches, and delicious cuisine that earned the city the reputation of “The Paris of the Middle East.”

Pigeon Rocks is a majestic natural arch that rises out of the Mediterranean and makes an excellent place to watch the sun set from the comfort of a roadside café.

Each Sunday, the Beirut Hippodrome (officially the Hippodrome Du Parc De Beyrouth) brings together an eclectic crowd of locals to bet on thoroughbreds. Don’t miss the chance to participate in this charmingly old school scene (and bring a passport or ID as you’ll need it to get in).

How long is the flight to Beirut?

Flights to Beirut, Lebanon from the United Kingdom range from about 5h-12h. The length of your flight will depend on factors including your city of departure, as well as the length and number of stopovers you experience. If you’re departing from the north, such as an airport out of northern England or Scotland, your flight time will likely be on the longer end of the range due to distance and the increased likelihood of stopovers. The opposite can be said from those flying out of major airports in the south, especially out of London.

Where can you get direct flights to Beirut from?

You can choose from daily direct flights to Beirut from the London’s Heathrow Airport, with flights serviced by British Airways and MEA. If you’re making your initial departure from any other city, you’ll have at least one stopover along the way. To decrease the number of stopovers you make, be sure to depart from your nearest major airport and book flights serviced by the airlines that regularly fly into Beirut, such as Aegean Airlines, Pegasus Airlines, Turkish Airlines, and Air France. This can help reduce the number of stopovers you make to just one. London, Paris, Athens, and Istanbul are cities in which common stopovers for this route occur.

How do you get from Beirut airport to the city centre?

For the same amount of time but less money, opt to order an Uber, which reduce the price to about £5.50-£6.50. If you prefer to do the driving yourself, there are rental agencies on the premises so you can hire a car for your holiday. There are no public transportation options at the airport. Be sure to check with your accommodations to see if they provide shuttle service to and from the airport.
