Lebanon expects 16,000 visitors daily this holiday season

Expectations indicate that 16,000 visitors will enter Lebanon daily this winter season, 35 percent of whom are Arabs and foreigners, and the rest are Lebanese expatriates.

 

The airport is preparing to welcome those travelers without any delay.

 

The head of the Syndicate of Travel Companies, Jean Abboud, told LBCI the airlines are using larger planes or increasing the number of their flights this month.

 

According to the Director General of Al-Matar, Fadi Al-Hassan, 75 percent of the airport's traffic has returned to the pre-crisis level.

 

The capital, Beirut, with its hotels, has reached 70 percent occupancy, according to the head of the Hotels Syndicate, Pierre Ashkar, and is expected to reach 100 percent on New Year's Eve.

 

The challenge is great for some hotels in Beirut, which returned and opened their doors again after the August 4 explosion damaged a total of 2000 rooms in various hotels in the capital, 600 renovated and returned to service.

 

The tourism traffic that Lebanon is witnessing in 2022 is only evidence of the country's ability to advance with its most beautiful activities, landmarks, and services.  This year, the tourism sector has pumped 4.5 billion dollars in the economic cycle, and it is expected that this number will rise to 5.5 billion by the end of the year.
