Middle East Airlines is one of the leading organizations in Lebanon to launch e-learning. 15 years ago, we have implemented a LAN version of Media-Based Training. Today, and with the help of IQUAD Learning Solutions, we have a Cloud-Based Learning Solution through Skills4Success Portal, a learning infrastructure that helped increase learner engagement as well as learner motivation to utilize our online learning platform, said Mr. Joseph El Azar – Head of Training and Development at MEA.
It has been a long journey for MEA. Today, through utilizing Skills4Success Learning Portal, MEA training Center is able not only to deliver off-the-shelf e-learning content to its employees but also different learning modalities such as Blended Learning, Community Learning, and Gamification. IQUAD Learning Solutions Special Award – 15 Years of e-Learning is granted to MEA for the commitment that MEA management shows in utilizing the latest technologies to deliver learning to their employees, said Mr. Fady Abdul Khalek – Managing Director of IQUAD Learning Solutions.
MEA strategic initiative for the coming years is to develop its employees and equip them with the relevant skillset that is needed to grow the company. Utilizing the Skills4Success Portal will be the most cost effective training delivery where we can introduce different learning modalities, added Mr. El Azar.
Skills4Success Learning Portal utilizes CrossKnowledge Learning Suite that is easy to implement and customize to deliver e-learning, blended learning, community learning, and other learning modalities. Such a platform is being utilized by different organizations across the Middle East region, added Mr. Abdul Khalek.
In 1945, Middle East Airlines was established and launched its first service from Beirut to the neighboring cities of Syria, Cyprus, Egypt then Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and other destinations in the Gulf. In 1963, after the merger with Air Liban, MEA added new European, Middle Eastern and West African destinations to its worldwide network.
MEA continued its expansion with the delivery of its first owned Airbus A330 in June 2008, with its new livery bearing the colors of Lebanese flag, with its elegant style and comfort. A step of major significance was also made when the cornerstone of the Regional MEA Training Center was set at Rafik Hariri International Airport Beirut in December 2008.
In June 2012, MEA officially joined SkyTeam Alliance.
SkyTeam is a global airline alliance providing customers from member airlines access to an extensive global network with more destinations, more frequencies and more connectivity. SkyTeam offers its 552 million annual customers over 15,000 daily flights to 1,000 destinations in 187 countries. As always, MEA offers its customers very luxurious services both on ground and on board, reflecting the Lebanese culture and hospitality.
