Airlines at Beirut implement measures in line with Trump travel ban: Airport sources

Reuters , Sunday 29 Jan 2017

Airlines operating at Beirut's Rafic Hariri International Airport have begun implementing measures in compliance with U.S. President Donald Trump's travel ban on refugees and nationals of seven Muslim-majority countries, airport sources said on Sunday.

The measures would include denying U.S.-bound travel for nationals from those countries - Syria, Iraq, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Libya and Yemen - who were not U.S. green card holders, the sources said.

U.S.-bound journeys from Beirut typically involve transfers in Europe, Turkey or Gulf Arab countries.
