NEW YORK & NEW DELHI -- November 13, 2013

NIIT Technologies, a leading global IT solutions organization, today announced
a partnership with GRU Aeroporto Internacional de São Paulo (Sao Paolo
International Airport), the largest international airport in Latin America, to
implement and transform the Cargo Handling system at the airport.

This partnership, the first of its kind in Latin America, will result in a
single platform cargo handling system, which will handle all performance and
operational needs of the cargo terminal, including core processes such as
import, export, national/domestic cargo and abandoned cargo. A web-enabled
interface will connect and streamline all external customer service-based
processes and agents. GRU will benefit with a fully integrated software
platform that will enable enhanced efficiencies, increased monitoring and
greater control over ground handling operations.

Lalit Dhingra, President of NIIT Technologies US, said, “As Latin America
continues to grow and the supply of products to this region increases, the
existing technology infrastructure will be under immense pressure. NIIT
Technologies is thrilled to be the transformation partner bringing this
state-of-the-art technology and process for Sao Paulo airport.”

According to Luiz Ritzmann, the CIO of GRU Airport, “GRU Airport Cargo is
undergoing extensive upgrade works, which encompass renovation, new equipment,
new systems, and new technologies. Within this context, we needed a partner
with international experience in the cargo sphere, like NIIT Technologies,
that would be able to understand our needs and mainly to offer technological
solutions so as to enhance the efficiency and quality of our services.”

NIIT Technologies has a strategic partnership with Singapore Airport Terminal
Services (SATS) for marketing, implementation and support of COSYS solution
globally. Combined with local processes and regulations, this solution ensures
greater transparency and precision throughout the value chain. COSYS automates

This partnership is the latest in a long line of successful endeavors by NIIT
Technologies in the travel and airport industry. NIIT Technologies has
developed an industry gold-standard by applying their domain knowledge to
