DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 10, 2001

XTRA On-Line Corporation ("XOL") reported today that Mark McCulloch has been appointed its new chief executive officer.

William (Bill) S. Diffenderffer resigned as chairman and CEO of XOL, effective July 4, 2001, to pursue other opportunities. Mr. Diffenderffer remains a member of the board of directors of XOL.

Mr. McCulloch has 23 years of experience in travel technology. He joined XOL as vice president of product development in November 1997 and was named senior vice president and chief technical officer in November 1999. Prior to joining the company, Mr. McCulloch served as director of architecture at Galileo, a Global Distribution System (GDS) Company, where he was responsible for Galileo's advanced product strategy, architecture and development. In this position, he was directly responsible for delivering a multi-tier infrastructure and the end-consumer applications enabling Galileo to distribute its reservation services over the Internet.

XOL develops and distributes the travel industry's first intelligent travel-planning engine, MyTrip(R). MyTrip makes educated, accurate and relevant pre-trip planning and real-timedestination and transportation decisions with one mouse or wireless click. XOL's MyTrip planning engine (patent pending) generates highly personalized travel itineraries, directly from personal information management systems ("PIM"), such as Microsoft Outlook(R). Using geo-coding and geo-location, MyTrip determines a traveler's optimal travel plan including flights, lodging, ground transportation and other travel needs. The engine also enables wireless applications to push and pull pertinent travel information (e.g., flight updates, traffic reports, and entertainment opportunities) directly to the user.
