Omega World Travel Introduces Risk Management Solution
for Business Travelers


FAIRFAX, VA - August 14, 2006 – "Terror Plot Foiled," "Fear in the Skies," "Travelers Resigned to Tougher Security Measures"—business travelers can't escape today's headlines and face growing, unprecedented threats. Travel management company Omega World Travel has partnered with Air Security International to introduce MegaTrak: a new risk management solution for business people on the move.

"With heightened danger warnings and security concerns, the role of travel agent has evolved into one of protector by providing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week customer assistance wherever they may be, along with help internationally to ensure global safety," said Gloria Bohan, President and CEO of Omega World Travel. "Both business and leisure travelers want to continue to travel the world safely, and the added assurance that we can offer by phone, virtually, and on location in 70 countries is one role that we gladly fill. Through the cooperation of ASI, our new travel security solution – MegaTrak – combines the most advanced security content and communications features in one package for comprehensive traveler safety."

As the Internet and technology leads to new commercial opportunities in a global economy, businesses expand their markets and more people travel, facing unfamiliar places with hidden dangers.

The MegaTrak solution lends peace of mind in a sometimes perilous world. MegaTrak (Owt.net/megatrak) effectively tracks en route corporate travelers in real-time, wherever they are. The solution combines data from multiple reservation systems, produces special reports when significant events occur, and offers customized briefings for hundreds of business destinations. And Omega's US-staffed emergency service centers cater to MegaTrak users' needs 24-hours a day, providing valuable information and assistance when it's needed most.

MegaTrak is powered by ASI, a leading provider of intelligence and security services. ASI unique security solutions support the corporate executive on-the-go and other travelers around the globe.

"Air Security International (ASI) is proud to be associated with Omega World Travel in assisting and meeting the needs of its travelers who travel domestically and internationally, by air, land, and sea," said Mark Hall, Vice President of Business Development for ASI. "Omega's travel professionals and ASI's security professionals have parlayed their expertise, education, and services in ultimately benefiting the traveler before, during, and after a trip."

Developed through real-life travel and security scenarios, MegaTrak allows organizations to better manage employees in less time than ever before:
    • Provides travel tracking across the globe
    • At-A-Glance graphical map displays all traveler locations
    • Determines the number of employees on any flight
    • Send briefings, alerts, and emergency contact information automatically
    • Offers travel security policy consulting and benchmarking

MegaTrak is part of a suite of corporate travel solutions at MegaRez Online, an on-demand self-booking portal for today's mobile workforce.

Omega World Travel not only leads the corporate travel field in security management with MegaTrak, but also offers robust business solutions like group meeting planning; online booking technology, affinity leisure tours, and corporate incentive programs.

Mark Hall's team is in the business of spotting risk before it happens and his company knows how to prevent it. "ASI's goal is to ensure that Omega World Travel's MegaTrak clients are provided information, data, and intelligence that will significantly reduce the chances of a traveler from becoming a victim of crime, an act of terror, kidnapping, extortion, or industrial espionage," he said.

"Monitoring and tracking through MegaTrak, along with a caring agent who knows you, is the best traveler assurance that we can provide," said Bohan.
