Cheap flights to Lebanon
Officially known as the Lebanese Republic, Lebanon borders Syria to the north, Israel to the south and is steeped in tradition and history. Visitors to Lebanon usually want to check out its 4 distinct regions - the mountain range, Beqaa Valley, coastal plains and Anti-Lebanon Mountains. Such a varied terrain makes for a jam-packed holiday schedule and Student Flights can get you to Lebanon and back with a range of cheap flight options. Some must-see sights include the 12th-century Crusader Castle, which leads trekkers into the L-shaped Temple of Reasheph in the city centre. A path further south could find you in King’s Well, the spring that used to supply the city with water before the Hellenistic Era. The Temple of Baalat Gebal , also known as the 'Mistress of Byblos', is also a stunning Lebanese attraction, and enough cannot be said for the nightlife you will experience in downtown Beirut – a city that seems to be stuck in a perpetual summer of fun and festival.
Flights from Australia to Lebanon will touch down at Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport (BEY). This is the only commercial airport in the country and is situated 9 kilometres to the south of the main city centre. The airport has undergone vast reconstruction and refurbishing due to its damage in the Lebanese Civil war and now boasts a modern main terminal with wi-fi, duty-free, shops, restaurants and lounges.
Flights from Australia to Lebanon will require a stopover in one of the Middle East's supercities such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi or Doha. Alternative flights can connect through Singapore or Thailand if you’d prefer. The total flight time for either route is approaching 18 hours. International airlines will look after you with meals, refreshments and entertainment. For more information on different airline services, see our airline guide.
