SITA Named IT Company of the Year
2015 Air Transport News Awards Recognize SITA's Leadership and Innovation
New Delhi, Delhi, India

For the second time in the past three years, the Air Transport News (ATN) Awards have recognized air transport IT specialist, SITA, as IT Company of the Year. The 2015 award was based on SITA’s influential leadership and innovation, new solutions and achievements, social responsibility, financial performance and contribution to the ATI community.

Dave Bakker, President, SITA Europe, accepted the award on behalf of Francesco Violante, CEO of SITA, at a special ceremony in Geneva on 21 March. He commented: “SITA is honored to receive this award bestowed on us from our peers. We work with nearly every airline and airport in the world, collaborating to create community value, while exploring new technology that will help shape the future of the industry.”
In recent years, technology has driven substantial changes in both the passenger experience and industry operations. SITA provides the broadest portfolio of solutions for the air transport industry all around the world, in response to community needs. This includes solutions such as SITA’s iBorders Border Management, a fully integrated border management portfolio that helps governments modernize border security and facilitate the travel experience, and AIRCOM® FlightTracker, which guarantees regular flight position updates for flight tracking, but does not require modifications to aircraft.  
SITA OnAir is working with airlines to realize the full potential of the connected aircraft, including setting the benchmark for true nose-to-tail connected aircraft solutions for both airlines and passengers. The company’s strategic technology research arm, SITA Lab, innovates on behalf of the air transport community, working with customers to pilot emerging technologies such as wearable technology, geo-localization and big data.
 “SITA is 100% owned by the air transport industry, so we make strategic investments, develop new solutions and explore innovations for the benefit of the entire community,” said Bakker.  “This award is a true endorsement of our direction and our strategic areas of focus and is thanks to our employees and partners, who are always looking for new ways to add more value.”
ATN has a strong subscription base of more than 42,000. The website’s readers selected all award winners based on two months of online voting, and they were later validated by a jury of industry leaders. SITA also won the ATN IT Company of the Year Award in March 2013.
