To add capacity by two million passengers
Works on an $18 million urgent expansion of Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport (BRHIA) will be completed in June, said Raya Al Hassan, Interior Minister.
The expansion of the terminal will add capacity by two million passengers to reach eight million.
It also includes raising the number of passport check counters from 22 to 34. A fast-track passageway is being developed for first-class passengers, which will allow them to leave or enter the airport faster. Baggage conveyors, inspection machines, power generators, a flight docking system, and cooling systems will be added.
