A flight from Zurich to Beirut operated by Swiss International Air Lines got cancelled yesterday in mid-air due to security concerns in Lebanon. According to a Swiss site, “Swiss experts decided on Friday night to cancel the flight from Zurich to Beirut while in the airspace over Bosnia-Herzegovina, owing to a security situation that was difficult to assess”. They did not mention what prompted this decision but I figure it might be related to the intense Israeli airstrikes on Friday.

Despite that, Swiss International Air Lines has confirmed it is keeping its flights to Beirut but will be monitoring the situation very closely. There are currently two weekly flights from Zurich to Beirut.
