Two million visitors expected this summer

12-6-2019

The minister of tourism, Avedis Guidanian, told An Nahar newspaper yesterday that he expects around 2,200,000 tourists in Lebanon this summer, particularly in July and August. His information is based on available flight and hotel bookings, combined with the promising security and political situation, as he said, stressing that preparations to receive tourists from various countries are almost complete. Preparations include the international airport, in terms of facilitating arrivals and departures, increasing the general security checks and easing transactions. In a related vein, An Nahar wrote that the number of incoming visitors to the country looks thus far encouraging. The passenger traffic at Beirut Airport recorded a 33.7% increase during the first ten days of June, with 258,702 passengers against 193,391 passengers during the same period of last year. May figures have posted 572,876 visitors, rising the total to 3,139,690 arrivals during the first five months of this year, compared to 3,57,689 passengers in the first five months of 2018, that is by a 2.69% increase.
