Egyptian Airports Company Awards ARINC CUPPS Contract for Five Regional Airports.

Thursday 7th March 2013

ARINC Incorporated today announced it has won a major three year
contract to install its industry-leading passenger processing solution vMUSETM
at five regional airports in Egypt including Sharm El Sheikh, Luxor, Aswan, Borg
El Arab and Abu Simbel. The ARINC vMUSE platform is fully compliant with the
IATA CUPPS standard for common-use passenger systems.

ARINC will be working in partnership with Aviation Information
Technology (AVIT), a subsidiary of the Egyptian Holding Company for
Airports and Air Navigation. Under the contract, ARINC will procure, build and
install the core common use passenger processing systems (CUPPS) and provide
remote third level support while AVIT will handle first and second level
support. The contract includes an aggressive 14 week delivery and implementation
schedule for all systems to all five airports by the end of May
2013 of which the team is on plan to meet.

"Egyptian Airports Company (EAC) airports have been experiencing strong
growth for several years ," said Dr. Ashraf Zaki,
Vice President of EHCAAN. "We believe that ARINC
is an ideal partner to handle our continued expansion given their
industry-leading technology and the tremendous airport experience they bring to
the table, both globally and here in the Middle East."

"The ARINC vMUSE solution gives EAC the latest, state-of -the-art
CUPPS platform," said Tony Lynch, Regional Director, ARINC Middle East &
Africa. "We have developed strong relationships in Egypt based on our excellent
track record in delivering key projects such as Cairo Airport TB3 and Seasonal
Terminal. We are pleased to be selected by EAC for these five airports and look
forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship."

ARINC's vMUSE maximizes airport operations by eliminating sof tware
engineering and development costs--giving smaller and mid-sized airports much
more flexibility to upgrade their operations.
