Flights to Beirut, Lebanon from the United Kingdom range from about 5h-12h. The length of your flight will depend on factors including your city of departure, as well as the length and number of stopovers you experience. If you’re departing from the north, such as an airport out of northern England or Scotland, your flight time will likely be on the longer end of the range due to distance and the increased likelihood of stopovers. The opposite can be said from those flying out of major airports in the south, especially out of London.
You can choose from daily direct flights to Beirut from the London’s Heathrow Airport, with flights serviced by British Airways and MEA. If you’re making your initial departure from any other city, you’ll have at least one stopover along the way. To decrease the number of stopovers you make, be sure to depart from your nearest major airport and book flights serviced by the airlines that regularly fly into Beirut, such as Aegean Airlines, Pegasus Airlines, Turkish Airlines, and Air France. This can help reduce the number of stopovers you make to just one. London, Paris, Athens, and Istanbul are cities in which common stopovers for this route occur.
