On April 10th our Chairman and CEO Mr. Elhamy ElZayat received several hundred customers, business partners, friends and Emeco management for a full day of sun, fun, music and good food at his property in Fayed by the Bitter Lake.
Mr. Elzayat again impressed everyone with his hospitality and generosity.
Several Egypt Air retirees commented:” We always look forward to this annual event, meeting longtime friends and talking about old times.
It’s remarkable that Mr. ElZayat not only entertains active and useful connections, he never forgets old friends and business partners, even decades after their retirement!”
The President of the Airline Section, Mr. William Hamad, underwent surgery in Beirut, recently. We all sincerely wish him a speedy and complete recovery.
The trainings in Presentation Skills and Time Management/Work Technique continue.
New is a series of lessons in geography, history, (Egyptian history held by our Chairman Mr. ElZayat), knowledge about touristic capitals of the world and the mentality and languages of people from our main visitors’ countries.
Soon the Emeco School of Business will offer a course in Business Writing and another one on Communication Skills.
Anyone can register for participation in any of these courses with Mr. Ismail Rashid.
Mr. Berge Andreassian informs:
Our Airline/GSA department in July 2009 managed the acquisition of a distributor cooperation agreement) for two airlines:
1st: Flydubai, who only have PSA’s (Passenger Sales Agent) in Egypt and no GSA (General Sales Agent) yet. We are hoping this agreement will increase our airlines GOP and we will be selling, soon.
All Emeco offices have been provided with usernames/ passwords as well as training.
2nd: TUIfly, This airline belongs to the TUI corporation and is a merger of Hapagfly (formerly BSP participant operating ex CAI) and Hapag Lloyd Express, the Yellow cab (actually their colors) of European Skies. TUIfly is considered a “low priced” not low cost carrier as it offers full F&B service in the air at no charge.
Their handicap in Egypt is they are non BSP participant and non GDS either.
(All web-based reservations) This is where we were lucky to get the distribution since their GSA is unable to cope with the geographic market demand.
The only other distributor in Egypt is Thomas Cook.
Presently the agreement is in place pending execution, when TUIfly provide us with our exclusive Username/ Passwords for Agency credit. (I.e. our clients who can’t use C Cards or prefer not to, can just pay us cash. This is great for the corporates and individuals alike.)
Both airlines revenues for Emeco come from the “Service Fee”, which we keep in full. The more we sell the more we make.
Details on each airline can be found on their relevant websites.
