Middle East Airlines signs up with ECS group for GSSA services

Middle East Airlines (MEA) has chosen ECS Group as its General Sales and Service Agent (GSSA) at its European hub, Paris Charles de Gaulle.
 
Under the agreement, ECS Group will provide the Beirut-based Lebanese air carrier with sales and operations services in Paris.
From the French capital, the airline provides flights from France, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Belgium and US to stations such as Beirut, Abidjan, Doha, Dubai, Jeddah, Larnaca, and Riyadh with Airbus A330-200 passenger aircraft, offering a total monthly cargo capacity of 1,200 tons, plus daily narrow body capacity out of Italy and Belgium (A320).
"European markets offer big volumes of diverse commodities to be shipped to Beirut, such as perishables, flowers, cosmetics, and fashion as well as general cargo," ECS said.
"In order to optimise MEA’s full capacity and increase its market share, ECS will closely co-operate with the MEA cargo management to draw up tailored offers for each market."
