Lebanese carrier stops dealings with state institutions

Lebanese carrier Middle East Airlines (MEA) has decided to freeze all dealings with public state institutions after the finance ministry failed to meet its financial obligations on time, The Daily Star has reported, citing a source close to MEA's board of directors. A senior official at the finance ministry delayed paying instalments totalling around LL11bn to the airline, the majority of which is owned by Lebanon's central bank, the source said. With the exception of the presidential staff and members of Lebanon's security institutions, MEA froze its dealings with all state institutions and halted the issuance of travel tickets for senior state officials, the source said.
