BEIJING -- March 26, 2013

NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) announced today it will provide NCR TouchPort
kiosks to Ordos Ejin Horo Airport in China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region,
through a partnership with Beijing Sinonet Technology Co., Ltd (Sinonet). The
kiosks will run on a common use self-service (CUSS) platform, allowing
passengers to use the kiosks for self-check-in for flights on all the airlines
that operate at the airport.

This is the first time that Ordos Ejin Horo airport has offered self-service
check-in for passengers. NCR’s technology is a major part of Ordos Ejin Horo
Airport’s and Sinonet’s effort to accommodate the rapid increase in passengers
at the airport.

NCR will also provide maintenance services for the kiosks to ensure maximum
availability.

Founded in 2007, the Ordos Ejin Horo Airport is a regional airport with routes
connecting to more than 30 cities in northern China. It currently has a
passenger volume of more than 1 million for the third consecutive year. More
than 10 airlines operate out of Ordos Ejin Horo, including Air China, China
Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Hainan Airlines, Tianjin Airlines,
Hebei Airlines and Spring Airlines.

Passengers arriving at Ordos Ejin Horo Airport can use the NCR self-check in
kiosks to check flight information, change seats, check itineraries and print
boarding passes. Passengers who have checked in online but wish to make
changes can also use the kiosks.

The NCR TouchPort kiosk comes with a faster processing speed, reducing
passenger transaction times. The kiosks also feature two-sided thermal paper
technology, which will save up to 40% on paper costs, help reduce staff
workload for paper replenishment and facilitate group check-in. The kiosks can
also read mobile barcodes, drivers’ licenses and passports making the check-in
process even easier and giving Ordos Ejin Horo Airport the potential to
develop paperless self check-in in the future.

“Ordos Ejin Horo Airport has set a best practice model for other regional
airports in China by providing a shared self-service check-in offering,” said
NCR Travel Vice President and General Manager Tyler Craig. “The NCR self
check-in kiosks help regional airports make traveling easier and more
convenient and truly bring cost savings and efficiency to both airports and
airlines.”
