KILLEEN, Texas, Nov. 9, 2012

KILLEEN, Texas, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As the nation looks to celebrate
Veterans Day, Orbitz Worldwide and its customer experience partner Aegis
announced today that they have hired over 200 United States armed service
veterans and military family members for customer service representative
positions at Aegis's Killeen, Texas center.

In February, Orbitz Worldwide committed to the First Lady's Joining Forces
Veterans Hiring Initiative, and initially pledged to hire 50 veterans and
military family members in 2012 through its call centers and at-home agent
programs. While their original goal has already been far surpassed, Orbitz
hopes to continue hiring. "The military community provides a strong talent
pool of attractive candidates. We have experienced that veterans and military
family members are skilled and dynamic individuals, and their commitment to
customer service improves the travel experience for our millions of global
customers," said Barney Harford, CEO of Orbitz Worldwide.

"Aegis is proud to hire military veterans and their families, and we are
equally proud to partner with our clients to help them accomplish their
goals," said Sandip Sen, CEO of global customer lifecycle management for
Aegis. "We have several contact centers located close to U.S. military bases,
and these areas give us access to exceptional labor pools. Military veterans
and their families comprise a well-rounded, tech-savvy, and well-traveled work
force with a strong desire to serve. Their work ethic is an inspiration to our
global work force."

Orbitz and Aegis will be joining together at the Aegis facility in Killeen on
November 12 to honor their military-related personnel in observance of
Veterans Day. State and local public officials are expected to attend and meet
with the employees to thank them for their service, and highlight the many
civilian employment opportunities available to veterans and their families.

Aegis is still looking for qualified candidates to fill remaining openings for
the Orbitz account. The customer service positions are ideal for military
veterans and family members with excellent communication skills who would
enjoy competitive pay, fun activities, and performance incentives. Qualified
candidates interested in employment are encouraged to contact Aegis at 777 N.
Twin Creek Drive Killeen, TX 76453. Applications are accepted via the
company's website http://aegiscareersusa.com and in-person.
