Global travel technology firm Sabre Corporation has appointed Ibrahim Marmoush as director for Air Commerce in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
In his new role, Marmoush is tasked in heading the company’s air commerce business in the region, growing Sabre’s global distribution systems (GDS) customer base. He is also expected to continue building on the company’s existing relationships with Middle East carriers and airline customers, while also securing new partnerships.
Alessandro Ciancimino, vice president Air Commerce, Sabre, said: “Ibrahim’s extensive understanding of the airline industry’s many complex challenges will be an invaluable asset in his new role.
“Airlines are facing multiple market pressures and their retailing and distribution needs are evolving as a result. As we further develop and enhance our systems, Ibrahim’s expertise will help us meet those needs, providing airlines with the right technology to support their growth.”
Holding over two decades of experience in commercial and technical positions within the industry, Sabre’s new Air Commerce director previously served as the company’s senior project manager for the Middle East.
Before joining Sabre, Marmoush worked for British Airways, as well as other notable GDSs in both Egypt and UAE.
