Collectively, the region's airlines represent more than 700 million passenger-trips annually, translating to almost one-third of the global passenger traffic.

"The presence of GuestLogix in Asia-Pacific underscores the Company's continued focus on expanding our customer footprint in this key growing market," said Tom Douramakos, President and CEO of GuestLogix. "We are dedicated to applying our global knowledge and capabilities locally to meet the region's specific requirements from our Asia-Pacific hub located in Hong Kong, one of the world's busiest passenger travel centers."

Heading up the Company's Asia-Pacific operations is veteran airline industry executive Tony Sit who has been overseeing market expansion, client services and solutions delivery for the region since late 2011.

"GuestLogix is pleased to launch its Asia-Pacific headquarters to address a growing demand among the region's airlines for a sophisticated, end-to-end onboard retail solution," said Tony Sit, Senior Vice President and General Manager of GuestLogix Asia-Pacific. "We are also excited about the opportunity to strengthen relationships with our customers and partners in the region."

To solidify the Company's presence across Asia-Pacific, GuestLogix also plans to open regional offices in China, Singapore and Australia.

GuestLogix' new office is located at 193 Prince Edward Road West, Grand Century Plaza, Unit 1208-09, Tower 1, Hong Kong. The opening ceremonies will be attended by local dignitaries, key customers, partners and associations. Guests will receive demonstrations of the Company's onboard retailing technology platform including its new Chinese, Japanese and Korean language versions of its solution announced last month.
