SITA to provide faster connectivity to MEA’s global network
Middle East Airlines-Air Liban (MEA) has signed a five-year master agreement with SITA, an air transport communication services provider, to introduce new and faster connectivity across its global network of offices and outstations.
MEA will use SITA’s technology to maintain fast and effective links with its 26 outstations worldwide, the national carrier said in a statement.
“We needed a partner that had the ability to support us 24/7 and across all the cities from which we fly,” said Adib Charif, Head of Information Technology at MEA.
The airline has extended the use of SITA’s Community Messaging service, which allows it to share operational messaging across its global network.
MEA flies to 32 destinations and carries more than 2.6 million passengers a year. Its business relations with SITA go back to 1956.
