Lounge

The airport has three lounges for premium passengers located on the mezzanine level above the Duty Free area in the departure area. They are:


  • MEA's Cedar Lounge: the largest of the three lounges. It occupies half of the available lounge space, and was expanded and upgraded on August 1, 2005. It is open to non-MEA passengers.
  • Saudi Arabian Airlines's Golden Lounge: Only Saudi Arabian Airlines passengers are allowed to use this lounge.
  • LAT Lounge: operated by the ground handler, Lebanese Air Transport (LAT). Open to all the other airlines' premium passengers.


Most airlines serving Beirut simply choose to use either the Cedar Lounge or the smaller LAT Lounge for their premium passengers, which is the reason why there are so few airline lounges in the airport.
