Instead of closing down the hazardous Costa Brava landfill, which is only located 200 meters away from the airport, Lebanese authorities are planning to deploy bird-scaring devices and cars to prevent any collisions at low altitudes with the planes. This means that they will be polluting further and providing a temporary, non-reliable and unsustainable solution.

On another note, MP Qabbani announced the launch of self check-in machines at Beirut’s airport and that planes will no longer fly over Beirut at low altitudes. I thought we already had self check-in machines.

Last but not least, we still don’t know how a 12-year-old boy was able to slip through all the security checkpoints at Beirut’s airport, board the plane and fly in business class to Istanbul.
