Since 2016, GAC TR had already been one of the Egyptian airline’s Preferred Sales Agents. Three years later, it is becoming its 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 (General Sales Agent) 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,” said Nursel Guven, Managing Director at GAC TR.

Based in Istanbul and founded in 2015, GAC TR now has seven employees and has 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 clients for both current and future destinations, as well as to use the partnership as a chance to increase recruitment and accelerate its growth.

“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,” added Nursel Guven.

Tender opened in May 2019. Final decision made in July 2019. Contract signed on 21st August, to start on 1st September 2019.

“With this partnership between Egyptair and GAC TR, we are once more opening up a huge range of possibilities to local airlines and GSAs. It’s proof that as a member of our group, a GSA can become a significant regional player for a major airline,” said Sauro Martinelli, Regional Manager Europe at ECS Group.
