Passenger traffic increases in Beirut airport

The Lebanese Ministry of Tourism launched a campaign last month to attract Lebanese people living abroad to visit the country this summer. Lebanon has a diaspora of millions of people in Europe, the Americas and Africa, which may outnumber the population in Lebanon itself.

The efforts may be succeeding. Most of the people who use the airport at present are Lebanese, according to the National News Agency.

Lebanese living abroad have the advantage of bringing in more stable currency into the country. Many Lebanese are being priced out of summer activities due to the currency depreciation.
