                   Solution to Automate Aviation Operations

  LAS VEGAS, Nov. 26, 2012

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Over the past five years, the airline
industry has undergone a huge transformation – both in operations and revenue
model – with airlines looking for ways to cut costs, improve profitability and
efficiency. Today, Allegiant Systems Inc. announces the launch of FlyDesk ™, a
cloud-based, enterprise software solution for airlines that automates
in-flight processes, increases revenue opportunities and improves the customer
experience, without increasing costs.

In recent years, iPads have been integrated for testing into the US operations
of Alaska, American and United, with approximately 30,000 pilots already using
the technology in-flight. FlyDesk is the first turnkey solution that offers
both the software and hardware necessary to help airlines solve complex
automation projects using iPad tablet technology.

"Cabin service automation is one of the most difficult areas to accomplish
effectively and affordably," said Joe Ayson, Director of Marketing & Corporate
Development at Allegiant Systems. "With the recent regulatory approval of
tablet technology in aviation and its proven effectiveness as a tool to cut
costs and improve productivity, FlyDesk enables airlines to secure a mobile
solution, without a large capital investment."

Initially, FlyDesk supports airline cabin crew operations through FlyDesk
Cabin , which digitizes manuals, automates reporting and offers secure e-mail
services. FlyDesk Cabin was designed to meet the specific needs of airlines
and creates a "paperless" operation, cutting back on onboard weight, easier
updates and improve fuel economy and costs. Four airlines are implementing the
FlyDesk Cabin solution fleet-wide beginning in December 2012.

"We understand the difficulty in supporting a fully mobile automated system
for the cabin crew," said Andrew Kemmetmueller, CEO of Allegiant Systems.
"Using FlyDesk Cabin, airlines will be able to keep cabin crews connected,
devices secure and up-to-date, no matter where they are in the world."

This is the first of several flyServices to be announced by Allegiant Systems,
all of which will offer increased revenue opportunities for airlines, with
faster deployment, effortless scaling and continuous support.
