"This is GuestLogix first win in India, and we are excited it is such a marquee client for the region," said Tom Douramakos, President and CEO of GuestLogix.

"Inflight Sales Group's confidence in GuestLogix' onboard retailing solution is due to its global record of success," said Tony Detter, ISG Managing Director.
