Airport Management and Airport Operations
SITA technology helps more than 1,000 airports worldwide deliver a hassle-free passenger journey. Our future proof solutions – including single token travel, common use in the cloud, business intelligence, near-field communications (NFC), day of travel services and beacons – are helping transform airports and improve the passenger experience around the world.
Increasing passenger growth coupled with capacity constraints means that operating an airport demands insight and collaboration for the timely allocation of workforces and assets as well as the ability to make the right decisions at the right time to keep things moving.
SITA Airport Management is a suite of integrated software applications designed to support and enhance airport operations from landside to airside, from landing to take off. With SITA Airport Management solution, you have access to real-time data to better anticipate, plan and control your operations, assigning assets and resources more effectively.
SITA Airport Management gives you control of all of your operations from a central point. From service level agreements (SLAs) to passenger communications, from generating billing charges to real-time management of fixed and mobile resources, including staff.
Our AODB underpins A-CDM ensuring all key stakeholders have access to the data and shared KPIs they need to efficiently manage their daily operations.
Delivering passengers’ bags from A to B may sound simple, but we all know it’s easy for things to go wrong. Passengers also spend a lot of time worrying that their bags will go astray. It’s no surprise then that baggage management is a leading investment priority for airlines, airports and ground handlers.
The SITA 2019 Baggage IT Insights research shows that the total number of mishandled bags has dropped over the past decade. It has plummeted by a massive 47%, from 46.9 million in 2007 to 24.8 million in 2018. The annual bill footed by the industry has also shrunk 43% to $2.4 billion, down from $4.22 billion in 2007.
Everyone in the industry needs to be trying to reduce the rate of mishandled bags, by adopting the latest technology, including tracking.
Baggage Management is the most advanced, comprehensive and flexible baggage solution ever developed. It gives you greater efficiencies, reduced costs and happier passengers. You’ll know precisely where every bag in your care is at every step of its journey. And if luggage should be mishandled, we’ll help you return it to its rightful owner in no time at all.
