Lebanese air corridors over the sea are temporarily closed to civilian aircraft

42
All air corridors operating in Lebanon over the Mediterranean Sea are closed on 3 of the day due to the Russian Navy maneuvers that began there, reports RIA News Friday's report from a representative of the Beirut airport.




Earlier, the Lebanese Minister of Transport stated that Russia “informed the authorities of Lebanon, Cyprus and Turkey about the beginning of the maneuvers of its Naval fleet in the Mediterranean. ” However, Lebanon, according to him, “cannot yet satisfy Moscow’s request to change the routes of civilian aircraft in the coastal zone due to the lack of alternative routes.”

“This night, and until Monday, the airspace over the Mediterranean Sea will be closed, just where the three Lebanese air corridors pass. It was decided to open one corridor along the border with Israel, they had not used it before. But in such conditions only on it we will be able to receive and send aircraft, ”said the representative of the airport.

“In this regard, we expect numerous cancellations and delays of flights to Beirut,” he said.

      Here's an interesting question, many were notified, even the Ottomans are silent, and Lebanon is indignant, as they say to a bad dancer, is there something stopping it?

        All the air corridors operating in Lebanon over the Mediterranean Sea are closed for 3 days in connection with the exercises of the Russian Navy, which began there, RIA Novosti reports on Friday a message from the representative of Beirut Airport.

        I wonder what is ours prepared, that even the air service of some Mediterranean countries is closed? You need to constantly monitor the news, otherwise you can skip something interesting. It cannot be that these are just teachings.

        But why should the Ottomans say anything if the teachings of the Russian fleet only blocked the corridors of the Lebanese? They’re out of business. If their interests are infringed, then the Turks will not be silent (not for nothing that NATO). In this case, the incident when our the fighters had contact with the Turks. The Turks then clearly let them see that they were watching and were ready to defend their interests. And so far Lebanon is suffering from a Russian bear. You can wait until Monday. It’s not long, fly along Israel, Lebanese comrades !!!

      This is only if the Turks agree with the British, then no flying fish will sail in this sea. It is understandable: one Bosphorus, the other Gibraltar. This means the inland sea of ​​NATO. It’s all the more honored to operate our squadron in such a difficult area. This is the emblem of the Gibaltars and the motto is: “The enemy will not drive us away.” In short, they want to sit there for a long time. The place is really very strategic, like the Bosphorus.

    If few people want to fight international terrorism, then let them not interfere with Russia's actions. And the teachings of such a plan are simply necessary. And it is very good that the states concerned understand this. There will be no return to the original condition. "Having said A, you need to say B!"

    Do it right. Is a man standing and often waving a club, will rogues want to rob him or pee a knife? I think they’ll think about it 100 times. So it is here. After all, the US aircraft carrier wanted to come up, and then the club, probably already got sick ...

      And what is there to think. At first Washington said no, then said yes. Government of Lebanon. GADA. Remember how they and the army were silent when their citizens were killed by air, art, armored vehicles and ground forces. But then they asked for help in the restoration of cities from everyone except Israel, and why was it already spent on bombs and shells. He must be pitied. He spent so much money on the murder of Lebanese citizens. hi

    First of all, everyone who writes here is not in the subject! When conducting exercises of the Navy or the Air Force using live firing, all neighboring countries are notified .. certain countries are urged to refrain from flying on some routes, and vessel passes on shipping routes! In case of an accident, a country that did not ensure the safety of a civilian ship or aircraft, previously warned of maneuvers, bears full responsibility for the accident! This is always done according to international agreements, it is not Russia that closes, Lebanon itself will close the space !!! Russia simply warned!

    Yesterday, the RBK trumpeted that Lian refused to “clear” the air corridors. Today they are silent. Why are there such media that publish only one-sided, indicative news without continuation? Is this not a manipulation of public opinion to create a negative perception of what is happening in the country?

      Relative courage is a relative concept. So the state army completely lacks the term “I call fire on myself” - to surrender alive there is more meaningful.
      In Europe they say "Do not drive a mad dog into a corner, it can bite." We think differently - "Drive a mad dog into a corner and kill so that no one has time to bite anyone." Our concept is closer to me as a sane person.

      Yes, I have not heard the "formidable" gentry for a long time ... Do they pick up words?

      Closing the corridor over the training area is commonplace. There are backup routes for this. Ensuring the safety of civilian flights is a delicate matter — you don’t have to fly where you shoot. We have not declared a sea blockade for them.
