Middle East Airlines officially joins Skyteam
Middle East Airlines (MEA) has officially become the 17th member of the global Skyteam airline alliance.
The carrier, based in Beirut, is the second Middle Eastern carrier to join the alliance shortly after Saudia joined last month (see story here).
The addition of MEA, which was first announced last year (see story here), means passengers of all member carriers will have greater options for travel across Africa and the Middle East.
Prior to joining, the carrier launched a restructuring project that included fleet renewal and rationalisation, network expansion and enhancing product quality.
Effective immediately, passengers who are part of frequent flyer programmes on other Skyteam member airlines will also be able to earn and redeem miles on MEA services, while those in MEA's Cedar Miles can do the same on other member airlines.
