YEREVAN — The Middle East Airlines has launched the Beirut-Yerevan-Beirut flights. A Lebanese delegation has arrived in Armenia on this occasion.

“This decision of the Middle East Airlines was an urgent necessity for our compatriots living in Lebanon and Syria. Operation of the flight will boost the development of economies of the two countries, particularly in the field of tourism, Armenian Minister of Diaspora Harnush Hakobyan declared at the meeting with members of the Lebanese delegation.

Lebanon’s Minister of Industry Vrej Sabounjian also attached importance to the launching of the flight.

“With this flight we’ll help those passengers, who face difficulties traveling to Armenia. All passengers on board of the first plane from Beirut to Yerevan were Armenians. They were singing the Armenian anthem as the plane was landing,” President of the MEA Company Mohammed El-Hout said.

Armenian CCI President Martin Sargsyan stated that “Lebanon has for centuries been a second homeland for thousands of Armenians. The Armenian community of more than 100,000 plays a great role in Lebanon’s life and is a bridge between the two nations.”
