Swedish airline Skyways selects GuestLogix technology to offer comprehensive in-flight retail service



    GuestLogix allows passengers on thirty-minute flights to benefit from its
    on-board full retail service capability

    STOCKHOLM, Sweden and TORONTO, Jan. 29 /CNW/ - The Skyways Group today
entered into a multi-year agreement with Canadian company GuestLogix
(TSX-V:GXI), for the provision of their Mobile Virtual Store(TM) on-board
technology, that includes wireless POS devices and application service to
assist Skyways' attendants with on-board sales transactions and enhance
Skyways' in-flight service. The deal was secured in co-operation with Klarago
AB, a Swedish airline caterer and wholly owned subsidiary of the Compass Group
Plc (LSE:CPG.L).
    The new technology will be fully deployed across Skyways' aircraft by the
end of this month to allow a full buy-on-board service, even on Skyways'
short-haul flights lasting thirty minutes. The GuestLogix solution allows
Skyways to offer food, beverages and gifts and accept cash in multiple
currencies or credit card payments. GuestLogix' unique technology and
attendant interface are particularly suited for short flights which are often
difficult to fully service. During 2006, Skyways served 850,000 passengers on
18 domestic and 3 international routes.

    
    Commenting on the deal, Klarago's Managing Director, Pontus Akesson said:

        "Today's agreement will mean Skyways can secure additional profitable
        revenues while elevating our on-board service. The Mobile Virtual
        Store(TM) from GuestLogix enables the launch of innovative new
        products and services to create a rewarding passenger experience."

    Tom Douramakos, President and CEO of GuestLogix said:

        "We look forward to growing Skyways' on-board retail experience
        through a variety of new products and services. Passengers on short-
        haul flights frequently receive less service because of time
        constraints. Our Mobile Virtual Store(TM) aims to change this
        experience completely."
