GuestLogix, Inc., the leading provider of onboard store technology to the passenger travel industry, has been awarded “Innovation of the Year: Implementation” at the 2011 Global AirRail Awards in Latvia, Riga, for its technology that helps airlines and rail operators establish new sales channels, and identify and increase onboard sales opportunities and revenues.

Recognized by a panel of judges that included Paul Simmons of easyJet and Diane Burke of First Great Western, GuestLogix received the award for OnTouch® Ground Connections; a technology and merchandising platform that allows airlines’ passengers to purchase Heathrow Express tickets through their network in a secure and highly accessible manner.

"GuestLogix was founded with a vision to use technology to transform the travel passenger industries, including air and rail. This award recognizes our vision and the way in which our technology is helping airlines and rail operators improve their business," said Tom Douramakos, President and CEO of GuestLogix. Our goal of enabling the sale of Heathrow Express tickets throughout new touch points to airlines' passengers in a way that would benefit all stakeholders, and without disturbing their current onboard retail operations, has been realized by this award."

Innovation for the Airline and Rail Industry
As the airline industry continues to battle against price commoditization, operators have looked to find new ways to generate revenues while creating a true value-add to their passengers. Likewise, Heathrow Express has offered passengers traveling to Central London the fastest, most convenient and cost-effective means of transportation.

GuestLogix’ award-winning solution fuses the relationship between air and rail travel operators while generating revenues for both parties and increased service to travelers, providing the sale of Heathrow Express tickets to airlines’ passengers prior to arrival at the gate. GuestLogix’ platform also provides access to additional sales channels.

Understanding the opportunity to monetize this touch point while creating value to their passengers became a priority for GuestLogix, its Airline Partners and Heathrow Express throughout the past few years.

"Conditioning air passengers to think beyond the standard taxi transfer to and from the airport is now a tangible initiative – and together with Heathrow Express we have proven that," said Richard Cushing, SVP of GuestLogix for the EMEA region who accepted the award. “The technology that we have developed for airlines, and now rail operators, is enhancing and delivering a seamless customer travel experience through a cost effective service, while generating revenues and capturing first time users.”
