Improve my operations through better collaboration? | SITA

Improve my operations through better collaboration?

The air transport industry (ATI) is a complex ecosystem. Airlines must collaborate with multiple stakeholders inside and outside the airport. Operational decisions always impact many others. Even in cases of simple changes, such as flight delays, informing and coordinating can be fragmented and time-consuming, leading to unnecessary disruptions for the passenger.

To make fast and informed decisions and offer a better passenger experience, airlines must share information in real-time, working together with their stakeholders as one.
