    CHANTILLY, Va., July 29 /EMWNews/ -- FLO Corporation (OTC

Bulletin Board: FLRP), which markets the FLO Registered Traveler card that

gives members fast access through security at leading airports, today

attending Redskins games as well as speedy access through special security

lanes at Reagan National, Dulles and other major U.S. airports.

    Redskins fans participating in the program will be issued a collectible

Redskins branded access card and will be able to quickly enter the stadium

through specially marked and dedicated "Fast Lane" stadium gates. A

one-year membership, which includes the Redskins Fast Lane card, rtGO(sm)

    "This is the first step in a major expansion of our business that will

allow FLO members quick access through security at airports as well as

preferred access to major concerts, venues and events where regular

entrances can at times become extremely crowded," said Glenn Argenbright,

Chairman and CEO of FLO Corp. "In accordance with our strategy, we are

evolving the platform beyond Registered Traveler and developing an

expanding variety of lifestyle-enhancement benefits.

    Washington Redskins Chief Operating Officer, Mitch Gershman said, "I am

excited to bring red-carpet treatment to FedExField on game day for

thousands of loyal Redskins' fans. This affordable and innovative new

service enables the average fan to enjoy premier fast lane-access, a

service not available at any other sports venue in the country."

    "This fan-centric membership helps to advance our ongoing quest to

improve the total fan experience on game day. The bonus for our fans is

that by partnering with FLO Corp., the Redskins card also enables members

to get through security in just minutes at Reagan, Dulles and 17 other U.S.

airports. Over 60,000 Redskins fans took more than 10 domestic trips in the

last year; and more than 500,000 traveled domestically for business,"

Gershman added.

    FLO cards, including the new Redskins branded card, are interoperable

with all Registered Traveler verification stations that the U.S.

Transportation Security Administration has approved at 19 U.S. airports. In

addition, FLO offers a robust assortment of benefits that add value, choice

and convenience far beyond the airport security lane. These benefits can be

selected from more than 75 options. They include such offerings as a

personal concierge, worldwide airline lounge access, discounts on top brand

gift cards, worldwide travel assistance, travel insurance and mortgage

concierge services. Details about FLO's benefit programs can be found at


    FLO Executive Vice President Luke Thomas said, "The business

opportunity for FLO in partnering with the Redskins is significant. The

team's exceptional demographics will enable FLO to offer its services to

the millions of fans in the Washington area. With over 6,000 businesses,

including some of the largest corporations in the United States as season

ticket holders, this will no doubt be a winning season for all parties to

this new service at FedExField."

    In addition, Redskins branded FLO cardholders receive a 10% discount on
