SITA is the world's leading service-provider of integrated IT business solutions and communication services for the air transport industry. They manage complex solutions for air transport, government and GDS customers over the world's most extensive network, complemented by consultancy in the design, deployment and integration of communication services.
SITA's broad range of IT applications and services includes airport operations and integrated baggage services, common use and desktop services, flight operations and air-to-ground communications, and end-to-end airline distribution and fares services.
Their solutions accommodate airlines' evolving IT and communications needs - from logistics, reservations, passenger check-in and flight planning systems, to on-board telephony and multimedia facilities or secure Internet solutions including e-commerce and e-business, and more.
SITA's airport services focus on the complete integration of technology systems at airports. SITA's solutions for passenger and baggage processing, departure and arrival control, terminal management and multimedia display systems set the standards for efficiency, helping airports embrace operations services, baggage services, passenger services and infrastructure services.
SITA announced in October 2010 details of a high-tech acquisition designed to put the air transport IT provider in a leading position in the area of mobile resource management solutions for efficient airport operations.
WorkBridge A / S, based in Copenhagen, Denmark is now part of SITA's airport solution division. The software developer is a leader in the field of mobile resource management solutions for the airport handling market and its solutions are used by global operators around the world.
SITA AIRCOM's air traffic control services enables air traffic service (ATS) providers implementing data-link applications to connect to the AIRCOM network, offering data and voice communications with SITA AIRCOM customer's aircraft. More than 1,200 customer-aircraft use SITA's advanced future air navigation system avionics, enabling pilots to use data-link instead of voice.
Today SITA is focussing on supporting the transition of air traffic management from an analogue to a digital communication, navigation and surveillance infrastructure. This includes controller pilot data link communications (CPDLC) and automatic dependent surveillance broadcast (ADS-B).
Growth of global terrorism, concerns of illegal immigration and the need for safe and secure borders make it that more and more governments want detailed and accurate passenger data as early and as far from their borders as possible. While the safety of air transport is in the interest of everyone, it has become progressively harder to move passengers quickly through the screening process.
SITA is neutral and has the know–how to expedite passenger data exchange between all stakeholders, address border management challenges and improve efficiency and speed of your screening process.
