Major Asian expansion for ECS

ECS is expecting to see major growth in Asia in 2011 as new business from major airlines drives a number of branch openings in the region.

The France-based global GSA group has already opened an office in Hong Kong in response to what Adrien Thominet (right), senior vice-president sales and marketing, describes as “two big airline projects” and it has plans to add several branches in China and Southeast Asia within the first half of this year.

Thominet declines to tell the names of the airlines involved in these new branch openings but insists they are “important opportunities”. Also on the cards for 2011 are offices in India in support of another special project, possible extension of ECS’s presence in Dubai to other locations in the Middle East and further expansion in Africa.
