With its vibrant nightlife, diverse culinary scene and blend of western lifestyle and oriental culture, Beirut is one of the most exiting cities in the Middle East, and is becoming known as one of the best destinations for a city break in the sun.
Karsten Balke, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Germania: “We are very pleased by the strong demand out of Stockholm and are proud to add a direct link between the two cities. Our flights to Beirut are aimed at both leisure and business travelers, as well as those visiting friends and relatives in Lebanon.”
“We are pleased to get this direct route and a better connectivity to Beirut as it is one of the larger cities underserved in the Swedish market. In the last years we have also seen a quickly growing demand for Beirut as a destination. It is also very positive that Germania is increasing their Stockholm Arlanda Airport operation, as in Q1 2016 the international traffic increased by almost 9 percent to and from Stockholm”, says Elizabeth Axtelius, Aviation Director at Swedavia.
