Apr 20, 2001, 01:00 ET from Air Packaging Technologies Inc.

    VALENCIA, Calif., April 20 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- In an
 official Company announcement, Donald Ochacher, President and CEO of Air
 Packaging Technologies Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:   AIRP), today issued the
 following statement: "The strong sales performance reflected in our first
 quarter results has continued into the beginning of the second quarter and is
 expected to continue for the balance of the year.  Based on sales projections
 to existing customers, we expect that annual sales for 2001 will exceed
 $3 million, more than triple the sales for year 2000.
     "As I stated in our previous press release, our products are finally
 achieving their place in the packaging market.  The Air Box(TM) was the first
 type of 'Packaging in Air' and it has taken some time for this type of
 packaging to be accepted in the marketplace.  As an indication of the growing
 acceptance of 'Packaging in Air,' Westpack, the largest packaging show in the
 United States, has this year established a 'Packaging in Air' category in its
 upcoming show directory."
     Air Packaging Technologies is an award-winning developer and manufacturer
 of inflatable protective, promotional and retail packaging.  Its goal is to
 position the Company's patented products as 21st century alternatives to
 conventional packaging such as bubble wrap, foam and polystyrene peanuts.
