Middle East Airlines poster, 1961

Appealing to water-skiers and snow-skiers (presumably for those living in the Middle East wanting to experience it in Europe). Middle East Airlines was founded in 1945 in Beirut, Lebanon, and operated flights to Syria, Cyprus and Egypt. Routes expanded later.  Early jets included the Caravelle and, on this poster, the Comet 4.
