Wings of Lebanon (Arabic: أجنحة لبنان) was[1] a privately held Lebanese airline, which began operations in 2006.

History[edit]

In July 2016 the airline expanded its business model from pure operations to also include largely seasonal scheduled international passenger services from its main base at Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport. The carrier has historically operated one Boeing 737-300 (OD-HAJ), and has catered for seasonal peaks using a variety of wet-leased narrow body Airbus or Boeing aircraft. On 20 May 2018, Wings of Lebanon took delivery of their first Boeing 737-700 aircraft.

On 26 August 2020, Wings of Lebanon announced that they were to suspend operations, citing the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic situation in Lebanon as the reason for ending operations.[1]
