LAS VEGAS, Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Allegiant Air, as well as three other
international airlines, have begun operational trials of Allegiant Systems'
FlyDesk Cabin solution, which digitizes manuals, automates reporting and
offers secure communication tools using Apple iPad® hardware. Using more than
200 iPads at the four airlines, FlyDesk Cabin creates a "paperless" operation,
cutting back on unnecessary weight, facilitates accuracy of manuals and
improves efficiency, while decreasing operational costs.

The four-week trial began on December 3 and will help define the operational
benefits that mobile technology brings to the airlines' cabin crew members.
Crew members at each airline are using the advanced paperless workspace
function of FlyDesk Cabin to improve customer service and productivity, while
streamlining operational processes and increasing revenue opportunities.

"These trials mark a new world in cabin crew mobility and operations," said
Andrew Kemmetmueller, CEO of Allegiant Systems. "FlyDesk provides airlines
with an opportunity to take advantage of tablet hardware in the hands of their
in-flight crew, who are often the least-connected airline staff."

The trial, which includes airlines in Europe and Central America, includes the
advanced use of digital manuals and has demonstrated the multi-lingual
capacity of the system. As part of the trial service, Allegiant Systems has
also included training, hardware logistics and ongoing support services to the

In addition to the reporting and paperless functionality of FlyDesk Cabin,
Allegiant Air also launched a new, integrated FlyDesk Buy-on-Board
application, which allows the cabin crew to use the same iPad to process
onboard customer purchases.

The initial hardware deployment and training has been completed successfully
and thus far, the response from in-flight crews at all four airlines has been
positive. The trial continues until the end of 2012, at which time the full
results of the trials will be available.

FlyDesk Cabin is the first of several flyServices offered within the FlyDesk
mobile platform by Allegiant Systems, all of which will offer increased
efficiency for airlines, with faster deployment, effortless scaling and
continuous support.
