Mobile Data Access | SITA



Mobile data is increasingly vital for the air transport industry (ATI) – from electronic flight bags (EFBs) for pilots to cabin crew applications to baggage reconciliation data for ground handlers. Yet having to source your connectivity from multiple network operators can lead to complex management issues and expensive mobile data roaming charges.

SITA’s Mobile Data Access offers industry specific cellular data connectivity that covers more than 180 countries and territories. We provide fast data rates and a simple pricing structure for roaming with no minimum order.


SITA’s Mobile Data Access sources ruggedized subscriber identity modules (SIMs) chosen specifically for the ATI. SITA organizes and oversees the global delivery, and we manage the full product lifecycle.

User control

SITA gives you control of your global SIM fleet, including activation, de-activation, traffic limitation capabilities and near real-time reporting.


Mobile Data Access is tailored to your requirements, including the number of SIMs, the data volume and the traffic distribution per country. It is suitable for multiple or single-country users, whether you require high data consumption or are limited to below 50MB per SIM per month.
