All costs related to the operation of GSA`s business are the responsibility of GSA, including insurance, rent, office overhead and all travel within the country or region necessary for the promotion and sale of the product. A General Commercial Agent (GSA) is a commercial agent for an airline in a given country or region. As a general rule, the GSA is responsible for the sale of the cargo space. A GSA typically sells products from multiple airlines. Airlines normally use a GSA in areas where they do not operate and allow them to have a commercial presence in a country at a lower cost than opening their own offices in the short term. It can also use its services because the GSA has historical connections with travel and cargo agents that will take too long for the airline to build itself. GSA receives a commission of approximately 3-5% on all revenue tickets and bunker units sold in the region it represents. . . .
