ECS Group’s Turkish subsidiary GAC TR (Globe Air Cargo Turkey) has signed an exclusivity contract with EgyptAir Cargo to begin marketing of its cargo offering from September.
GAC TR has been one of the Egyptian airline’s Preferred Sales Agents (PSA) since 2016. Three years later this is now becoming an exclusive contact for managing marketing of its cargo capacity and its other services within the region.
“We have been the PSA for MS (Egyptair) since mid-2016 and have had the chance to see that MS is very innovative and open to new ideas. To be chosen as the GSA for Egyptair and have the opportunity to continue serving them is very exciting – exciting to know that we can be a part of their continuous development,” says Nursel Guven, managing director at GAC TR.
Based in Istanbul and founded in 2015, GAC TR now has seven employees and can boast a diverse and constantly growing portfolio of clients and partners.
The aim for the ECS Group subsidiary is to develop and secure freight opportunities for the client for both current and future destinations, as well as to use the partnership as a chance to increase recruitment and accelerate its growth, it says.
“With the new GSA contract, we will have opportunities to cooperate with MS on new routes and projects, which will demand high levels of skill in project development and sales,” adds Guven.
“With this partnership between Egyptair and GAC TR, we are once more opening up a huge range of possibilities to local airlines and GSAs,” says Sauro Martinelli, regional manager Europe at ECS Group. “It’s proof that as a member of our group, a GSA can become a significant regional player for a major airline.”
