Company identifies four key areas for new investment next year
GENEVA (Switzerland) – September 13, 2022 – SITA, the leading IT provider for the air transport industry, announces the launch of a partnership program that aims to join forces with key partners as they pursue a new growth path .
Through this new platform, Launchpad, SITA has highlighted four key areas in which it seeks to build new partnerships: digital identities; advanced analytics and data management; airport security and safety; and sustainable alternative energy sources. Each of these pillars responds to recent changes in air travel demands, where SITA has already taken important steps in innovation and development.
Over the past two years, airlines and airports have faced significant challenges that have changed traveler behavior, requiring the industry to adapt its way of operating. Furthermore, rising fuel prices and volatility have grown sharply as passengers demand the same digital experience when traveling as this factor dominates every aspect of everyday life.
To meet this demand, SITA is accelerating its investments in new solutions that offer smarter ways of working, using existing and new technologies. At the same time, the company seeks to collaborate with partners inside and outside the air transport sector to complement its experience, with the aim of driving innovation or experimenting with new sustainable solutions in its operations.
“We are committed to enabling the growth of the air transport industry through smart solutions and technologies. We carefully analyze the market and identify key areas where we can have a significant impact, as well as helping our clients to work more assertively. We have a strong investment and innovation program to support these pillars, which are central to SITA’s growth. To accelerate this program, we are inviting new partners working in these four areas to join us so that we can reshape the air travel industry together,” said David Lavorel, CEO of SITA.
