GuestLogix, a provider of on-board retail and payment technology solutions to airlines and the passenger travel industry, has announced a 3-year agreement to deploy its retail technology platform, including POS handheld devices, on-board a Japanese airline.
The carrier will use the GuestLogix’s solution to accept credit cards on-board domestic and international flights for the purchase of food and beverage. Due to this agreement, GuestLogix has expanded its Asia Pacific footprint and also strengthens its relationship with channel partner, Inflight Sales Group Hong Kong (ISG).
“Expansion in the Asia Pacific region continues to be a strategic focus for GuestLogix in 2014, and it is with great enthusiasm that we announce our entry into the Japanese airline market,” said Brett Proud, President & CEO of GuestLogix. “In the past year, we have made tremendous strides in the Asia Pacific region, welcoming three major carriers in China and Hong Kong, and now our first customer in Japan. With 82 payment and operational certifications, our flexible Transaction Processing Engine and Global Payment Gateway have enabled us to expand into new countries, with the ability to process payments in virtually any currency, including the Japanese Yen. We look forward to working with ISG to support this new customer, and to further growing our Asia Pacific footprint via this partnership.”
“Once again, our partnership with GuestLogix has proven its value as we announce this exciting win,” said Tony Detter, Group Managing Director, ISG. “By combining our strengths and expertise, we are able to offer a powerful, dependable solution to the airline industry, as well as accelerate our growth in the region. Together, we will support the on-board retailing initiatives of this new Japanese customer, along with the expansion of its on-board store, to reach new levels of success.”
