UAE Issues Travel Warning for Lebanon, But Flights Still Taking Off

Despite the fact that the government of the UAE has issued a travel warning for Lebanon, flights are operating according to schedule.  The UAE was not alone in issuing the travel warning, which was also issued by Bahrain and Qatar.  The concerns center on security as they fear that the violence in the neighboring country of Syria has spilled into Lebanon.  However, a spokesperson from Etihad Airways said that there have been no changes to the flight schedule.

A spokesperson with Air Arabia echoed the statement made by Etihad Airways, adding that they are monitoring the situation closely and that if the UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority were to issue a directive, then they would obey the rules.  In addition, Air Arabia is ready to help any UAE citizens that wish to fly out of Lebanon due to the increasing level of violence.  Tripoli, Lebanon has seen some heavy fighting this past week, which has resulted in the death of ten people.
