Airlines modify flights ahead of potential Syrian strike

“The departure time from Larnaca Airport has been brought forward from 20:30 in the evening to 05.15 in the morning local time,” the airline said in a statement. “The change was decided so that the aircraft does not remain on the ground at Beirut Airport overnight. Similar arrangements have been made by other airlines.”

The airline said it would still operate a flight from Beirut to Larnaca at 7 a.m. local time in Beirut. 

Air France has also changed its schedule for flights from Paris to Beirut, according to a report from Reuters.
