GuestLogix Signs Toronto Airport Express to OnTouch™ Ground Connections

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 23, 2009) - GuestLogix Inc., (TSX VENTURE:GXI), the world's leading provider of onboard retail solutions to the airline industry, today announced an exclusive agreement with Toronto Airport Express to enable the sale of ground transfer vouchers through GuestLogix' OnTouch™ Ground Connections service onboard participating flights arriving at Lester B. Pearson International Airport. Operated by Pacific Western Transportation Ltd., one of Canada's largest privately-owned people transportation companies, Toronto Airport Express is the largest provider of bus services between Pearson Airport and Downtown Toronto.

"We are pleased to add Toronto Airport Express to our new OnTouch™ Ground Connections service," said Brett Proud, EVP Global Sales at GuestLogix. "We are making it easier than ever for passengers to continue their journey to their final destination by allowing passengers to buy ground transfers during flight prior to arrival at airports."

Toronto Airport Express operates 20 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, with departures every 20 minutes during peak periods and every 30 minutes during off-peak periods. The service transports passengers from the airport to a variety of popular downtown locations. Laptop plug-ins and WiFi-capability ensure that travelers can be most productive on their journey.

"Toronto Airport Express has been synonymous with convenience and high quality service, and is available at less than the cost of a taxi or limo," said Patty Pattison, Director Sales & Marketing at Pacific Western Transportation. "Our partnership with GuestLogix takes our longstanding attributes to a whole new level by allowing us to sell tickets to passengers in-flight."

OnTouch™ Ground Connections provides service at the top 50 airports - measured by passengers landed - which handle the overwhelming proportion of the world's airline passengers. For passengers without prearranged transportation, the service is a convenient and efficient way to arrange a ride. It takes confusion out of the process and creates options for passengers, many of which just walk out the first door and end up in a taxi line. Airport signage is often confusing, and finding both the ticket counter and the proper pick-up area can be difficult. The combination of added convenience and reduced confusion allows OnTouch™ Ground Connections to help carriers and ground transportation providers improve the customer experience and therefore enhance loyalty. Most importantly, airlines can share in the revenues generated by ground transfer ticket sales without carrying or managing any physical inventory.

OnTouch™ Ground Connections is powered by the GuestLogix Mobile Virtual Store™ onboard transaction platform which accepts payment via credit and debit cards, and any currency. Transactions are performed in-flight using state-of-the art handheld point-of-service devices which print ticket vouchers.
