SITA Launches Revitalized Portfolio to Meet Changing Industry Demands
Your trail to success, published by SITA, outlines five critical areas for rebuilding the airline industry over the next 18 months and highlights SITA’s reshaped solutions to address key challenges facing air transport in the wake of the pandemic of Covid-19.
Over the past 12 months, Covid-19 has significantly impacted the aviation industry financially and operationally. IATA estimates net loss for US airline industry$ 47.7 billion in 2021. IATA research also reveals that average passenger handling and waiting times have doubled from pre-crisis peak times – reaching three hours despite volumes of travel hovering around 30% of pre-Covid levels.
With declining revenues, increasing passenger volumes and new health requirements impacting operations, this is forcing airline and airport executives to refocus their IT spending priorities to meet these challenges, as reflected in SITA’s 2020 IT outlook for air transport. In response, SITA quickly pivoted its portfolio by modifying or launching new products and solutions to meet the growing demands of the airline industry for a healthy, safe and frictionless passenger experience, as well as the demands of agility, resilience and profitability.
