Universal Travel Group Launches Newly Designed Website.

SHENZHEN, China, April 8 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Universal Travel Group Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: UTVL) ("Universal Travel Group" or the "Company"), a growing travel services provider in the People's Republic of China ("PRC") specializing in online and customer representative services to the travel service industry offering packaged tours, air ticketing, hotel reservation and air cargo agency services, today announced the launch of its newly designed corporate website.

The new website will integrate the Company's three previous, separate ones (Classic, TRIPEASY, and Easytrip versions) into a single more integrated and streamlined platform. Accessible via , the website is a result of a year of research and development based on customer ratings and feedback. It offers comprehensive and timely travel information and services, including guaranteed low prices, high visual appeal, map support technology and easy payment functions. Additionally, new functionality such as the ability for customers to purchase cell phone minutes using the website should drive additional customers to the site.

The Company believes that with the website's rich feature set, value-added information and functionality, and the consolidation of its three separate sites, it will be able to improve its service standards, resulting in increased loyalty and customer satisfaction. More importantly, the Company expects the net effect will be a higher level of customers satisfaction and improved profitability. It expects to achieve a 5% to 10% increase in its online revenue generated by its air-ticketing and hotel reservation businesses within one year.

"We are pleased to unveil our state-of-the-art, user-friendly website, which is in line with our goal to provide reliable and quality services through innovative technology," stated Ms. Jiangping Jiang, CEO of Universal Travel Group. "With the newly integrated website, booking vacations will be easier than ever for travelers."

China has surpassed the U.S. to become the world's largest internet-using population. However, the proportion of internet users among the total population is still lower than the global average, as well as the number of internet users that actually purchase tickets online, which presents a significant opportunity for Universal Travel Group. The new website along with the Company's developments with regards to its TRIPEASY Kiosks should result in a growing customer base, helping to drive its reputation as a leading travel service provider in the PRC.

Along with the launch of its newly designed website, the Company is also launching an improved investor relations website, The newly improved investor relations website will provide timely company updates to the investment community and ensure better transparency and accessibility.
