September 8, 2009

establishment of scheduled cross-straits flights.

This is a first in the history of cross-straits travel, with Travelzen
offering the complete schedule of 270 weekly flights between four Taiwan and
27 mainland cities on the Travelzen website ( http://www.Travelzen.com ). This
not only allows travelers from Taiwan to easily purchase their flights to
China, but also allows them to be able to book a full range of China domestic
flights and hotels at previously unavailable competitive prices, an
unprecedented achievement in improving the accessibility and convenience of
cross-straits travel.

“This is an absolute first,” remarked Ted Sze, CEO of Travelzen. “Two
weeks ago, there were no scheduled flights across the straits. Now, China is
an exciting new destination for Taiwanese travelers and travel agents. We
understand the speed at which cross-straits travel is growing, and strive to
meet this need and provide an efficient way for Taiwanese travelers to book
their China trips.”

By being the first and only “Online Travel Agent” to offer real products
after the establishment of scheduled cross-straits flights, combined with its
uniquely powerful booking engine and vast array of Chinese domestic products,
Travelzen expects to claim more than 20% of the individual cross-strait travel
business in the coming year.

Adding to Travelzen’s strong position on both sides of the straits, the
Cross Straits Travel Agency (CSTA) will act as the Taiwanese distributor for
Travelzen’s suite of B2B products. Using the unique Travelzen engine and
designed to meet the requirements of small- to medium-sized travel agents, the
Travelzen B2B products will further consolidate Travelzen’s advantage in
cross-straits booking by making it easy for the extensive network of
independent travel agents in Taiwan to access and sell Travelzen’s impressive
range of travel products for the mainland, Hong Kong and Macau.

To complete the Taiwan services package, Travelzen.com accepts a full
range of Taiwan Dollar-based credit cards at no additional charges. All
payments are processed through their secure payment gateway, with stringent
risk management control to ensure peace of mind for their customers while
purchasing online.

Said Sze “We’re the first Greater China online travel booking service ever
created. We can offer our services to travelers to and from mainland China,
Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. We are all very proud to be able to provide a
small contribution to the economic development in this region.”
