SITA has been named Service Provider of the Year in the prestigious annual Air Transport Awards held in Dubai.

 

The winners are voted for by the readers of Air Transport News and a jury of international aviation experts, chaired by Henrik Hololei, Director-General for Mobility and Transport at the European Commission.

The Service Provider of the Year award was given to SITA in recognition of its role in providing IT and communication solutions globally to the air transport industry. SITA’s unique role as the community provider – being owned by the industry – means it has an unprecedented understanding of the industry’s requirements, combined with dedicated teams around the world which deliver services needed to keep people flying.

To be selected by our industry peers for this award is testament that our continued focus on delivering real value to the community is both justified and valued by the industry.

“Nearly every passenger flight in the world relies on SITA technology. SITA works with the industry to provide technology solutions that make a difference. It innovates collaboratively, while developing and managing solutions over the world's most extensive network, one that forms the communication backbone of the global air transport industry.”
