[Avionics Today 09-30-2016] Middle East Airlines-Air Liban (MEA) has signed a new five-year master agreement with SITA to introduce new connectivity across the airline’s network. The agreement includes SITA Connect, which provides the airline with in-flight connectivity network coverage. SITA’s technology aims to ensure that MEA can maintain fast, effective links with its 26 outstations across the globe, providing a headquarters-like experience across its vast network.

MEA has also extended its use of SITA’s Community Messaging service, allowing the airline to share operational messaging across their airline’s global network of offices and outstations.
